Words of comfort to the family may be expressed at 


Psalm 116:15 

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints. 


We rightly grieve when a loved one dies:  But God has a very different reaction.  He rejoices that another one of His children has entered His eternal presence.  Death is not the end, but a new beginning.   


Keno has gone home.
