Hi, I am very sorry for your loss. I wanted to share a comforting scripture with you at Revalation 21: 3,4 which says “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” How comforting it is to know that one day we will not have to deal with the loss of a loved one and there is a hope for the future. Our prayers go out to the family during this difficult time.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sending my deepest sympathy and a comforting thought to the family of Mr. Benny Enicke. The Father of tender mercies and the GOD of all comfort, comforts us in all our tribulation. GOD made hope for the dead possible by sending His only begotten son Jesus Christ to die for us. And Jesus promised that the dead will live again. Read John 5:21, 28, 29.

If I had another lifetime to live I would never be able to find a better friend. He was my hunting and fishing partner for over sixty years. We were cub scouts, boy scouts, and little league team mates. Our time at the camp or in a boat can never be replaced. In many ways he was closer to me than my brothers and I loved him like a brother. In my good times and bad he stuck with me and never wavered in his friendship toward me. He and I shared many a good drink or cold beer together while sharing stories about our children and grand children. He will be sorely missed. In our last conversation we talked about taking him fishing even though he was having great difficulty getting around. Now he can fish everyday and watch the animals he so loved to hunt. I know he will be watching us from heaven because he lived a very honest, hard working life. God rest my buddy for eternity.
