Sister was my mothers much loved cousin. Sad to learn of her passing. Many fond memories of her stand to remind how the humble life of service she led was truly impactful to many. Rest in peace

Your dear Sister gave a life of service and self sacrifice. Those are qualities hard to find in this day and age.
May you find comfort at Psalm 34:18 "God is near the broken hearted and those crushed in spirit he saves"
We find comfort in promises sure to be fulfilled such as Revelation 21:4 where God will wipe every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.
