I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Compton's passing. I met him while my Mom was in rehab at Avante. He was such a kind man & I so enjoyed going into the breakfast room and talking with him. My sympathy to his family. Mary Miller

My condolences to the Compton family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises. When convenient visit this short article for more on the hope that God promises:
