The Herrera family we are so sorry for your loss. Your dad was a very nice man. He was also a great photographer. May he rest in piece.

I am sorry to see you lost a loved one. Death is never easy to cope with, no matter how common it is. Know that God is near to help comfort you (Psalm 55:22). How we yearn for the time when sickness and death no longer separate us from one another (Isaiah 33:24, 1 Corinthians 15:26).

Although I did not have the privilege of knowing Paul, I have personally experienced the pain of losing someone I've loved dearly. I extend my heartfelt condolences to you. Please be assured of God’s enduring love for you, his concern with your well-being, and his willingness to help you endure this difficult time (1 Peter 5:7).  I pray that God’s promise at Revelation 21:4 will provide you comfort in the days to come.
