Wow, so sorry to hear Laren has passed away. He was a great coach that loved our son like his own. He's gone through some rough times and now he can do his work on the other side. I always loved to see him come to the temple when we were working there or he'd stop when we'd see him in the store to say hello. I know we've lost touch these past few years but just know we still care about you. May peace be with you, Laren, and with your family. I can't begin to know what you are going through, Gloria, but know you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

May these promises from the Scriptures help you endure the loss of Laren, for Jehovah is the God of all comfort. “Do not be anxious.....but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” Isaiah 26:4; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Philippians 4:6-7 NWT. Peace, and many happy memories of Laren be with you.
