I would like to first start off by saying, I’m so sorry for your lost. The lost of a loved one is so heart breaking and you may wonder will the suffering ever end? Well I’d like to leave you with this Text from the Bible. Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” I hope you find comfort in this. I will keep you guys in my prayers.

Our family is very sorry to hear about your loss. A scripture that always brings comfort to us is Revelation 21:4 I hope this brings a measure of comfort during this very difficult time.
