Im so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear loved one. Its very comforting to know what the Bible says about ones weve lost in death. Verses like Acts 24:15 are an excellent example of this: And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. Knowing Gods promise that well be reunited with our loved ones who have died is a promise that I hold dear to me. (John 5:28, 29) I know Gods Word can bring you hope & comfort too.

I had know Zane as just a little boy for years, he grew up with my niece and nephew! Then I start working at Sunbasket and I see this guy and there's something familiar about him! As he helps my put blocks of ice in the boxes, someone calls him by name. That's when it hit me I know this guy, only in my head he was still 8 years old. We had a conversation about my niece and nephew and how crazy it was that I didn't recognize him! So very sorry for your loss Christy and Russ! I work til 230 but if for any reason we get off early and I can make it there, then I'll be there. If not please know that if I could of I would of been there. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. I pray that your grief will subside quickly and if there's ever anything I can do please don't hesitate to ask. Love you guys. RIP Zane! Gone but never ever will you be forgotten!!

I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Zanes family. Death is the hardest thing we have to deal with in life. I know my words can do little to ease the pain you are feeling, so I pray that the God of comfort be your comfort now, to help you cope. (2 Thessalonians 2:16,17) Lean on Him in the days to follow and read of our amazing hope for our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. (John 5:28) For help to deal with grief please visit JW.org.

Zane Berner was like a brother to me and was very kind, loyal man to Heather Evans. He treated her like it was his on wife. He also treated me like his brother. When heather was feeling sad he was always there to comfort her. When Heather was sick he was there to comfort her. He had respect for Heather's family. We all have prayers for zane berner that god will take care of him and that god will always be with use.
