Condolences and deepest sympathy to the Corlew family and all who he touchrd in his lifetime as he wss a very special person. Johhny was like a dad to us and we loved him dearly. Always enjoyed his visits with ud and stories about Nasa. He will forever be missed.
Please accept my sincere condolences. God knows the pain that comes when we lose a loved one, that is why God describes death as an enemy that he yearns to do away with (1 Corinthians 15:26). Our dear loved ones who are resting in death will soon be awakened and reunited with us (Isaiah 26:19). Hold on firmly to this beautiful hope, and may the wonderful memories fill your mind and heart.
