My sincere condolences to Harshbarger Warthan family. It is hard enough to try to put into words the emotions you are dealing with right now. True comfort can only be found by knowing the true Creator. Knowing that He hates death: he even views it as an enemy.(1 Corinthian 15:26) He has “a yearning” to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He longs to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again-Job 14:14,15. And for the mean time“ He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds.”(Psalms 147:3). So trust that He can comfort you.

My prayers go out to the family. Kari was a very sweet and kind person and she will be missed by all. I just wish there were word I could say to make you feel better but I cant. Just ask God for the help you will need to be able to deal with this.

Vicki, Corby and family-

I am so sorry for the loss your family is dealing with. I did not know Kari, but I certainly remember Corby at FHS...Nate and Corby graduated together in 95. I do not pretend to know how you feel, but as a parent and grandparent my heart aches for you and this sad loss. I will remember you and your family in prayer in the days to come. Praying for grace, mercy and strength as you adjust to a new normal. I am thankful that Kari's children have a loving family to raise them in her absence. Sincerely.
