Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Know that God is aware of the tears you are shedding. (Psalm 56:18) He will soon do what is said at Acts 24:15, which promises us of a resurrection of our loved ones. May that bring you hope. Take comfort in your good memories and allow your family and loving friends to help you through this difficult time.

Uncle Linden was a fantastic person. I will always have lots of memories of him working out at the Belnap Farm teaching us how to haul a bale of hay. Linden was always so positive and supportive of me and my brothers in our school sporting events. He will be missed.
