    We are so sorry to hear of your Father passing. He was a man of God and a good example to all. I remember meeting him when I was a teenager. May God grant you all comfort. There is no more suffering. Our prayers are with you.

    The first time I saw Uncle Malcolm was when I was about 5 years old, but I have never forgotten the sight of this tall uniformed man standing up and testifying from the balcony at Midway Gospel Tabernacle in Mishawaka, Indiana. A short while later, I was the ring bearer in his and Aunt Carol’s wedding.

    He made the most wonderful cream horns, the best in the world as far as I’m concerned. I loved that little narrow bakery store next to Bushbaum’s Pharmacy.

    Uncle Malcolm was always the most gracious of men, a godly man, devoted to his family. He always bore a pleasant demeanor and was always concerned how everyone was getting along.

    God bless the Hazelip family with the comfort of the Holy Spirit and the hope of resurrection, in Jesus name.

    Please accept my sincere condolences during this time of grief. My hope is that the words of Christ Jesus be of comfort, when he stated that “the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out” (John 5: 28, 29). We can also take comfort in God’s personal promise to “wipe out every tear” and that soon, even “death will be no more” (Revelation 21: 4).

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one.  May the God of all comfort give you a measure of comfort through the many prayers in your behalf. (2Corinthians 1: 3, 4;  Revelation 21: 3, 4)
