And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4My sincere condolences to the Grimm family and those who knew Theresa on the loss of your dear loved one. The Bible promises at Acts 24:15 and John 5:28,29 of a resurrection, which is a sure hope of being reunited with our dead loved ones.

To the family of Theresa, I was a customer of Theresa's for many years starting when she worked for Smith Paper Company, through around 2011 when I retired. We always had a great business relationship, but more than that, we became good friends. I will miss her very much.Tony Saccone/ New Art Printing and Lane Press of Albany
