My condolences to the Polite family. I know this is a difficult time for the family and I pray God comforts the family during this time of bereavement. May the many loving and cherished memories of Gripper comfort his family and friends. May you all have peace of mind during this time. A comforting thought to keep in mind is at Isaiah 25:8 "He (GOD) will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." May you all have calming thoughts during this time.
