Prayers and loving thoughts for Barb and my Bruner cousins. Wee will be missed terribly but I know there is no doubt that Heaven is having a joyful Hayes reunion. I will forever remember the love and joy Wee shared when I visited New Orleans and when he and Barb were here in Louisville. He will be missed terribly. Rest in Peace dear cousin.

Our deepest and heartfelt sympathy to my cousins and my loving Aunt Barbara for your loss, I am so sorry. Uncle William was our favorite uncle who generously gave of himself. He didn't need a reason to share food, laughter, and kindness with others and held many family gatherings at him and Aunt Barbara's home. His love of life was contagious to all who met him and he will surely be missed. Our thoughts, prayers, and love are with each of you at this time. Much love and peace to you all. Cyndi

My condolences to the Bruner family. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Red. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. This is further confirmed by John 28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering
