To the Family. I am sorry to hear of your loss and know the pain of the death of a loved one. The promises from God's Word is a great source of comfort and hope. Isaiah 25:8 says that 'death will be swallowed up forever.' What a relief. The time will come when humans will no longer look forward to it. Even better, is when the time comes when we will see our loved ones again, as Acts 24:15 promises, "There is going to be a resurrection...". The God of the Bible is truly 'the God of all comfort.' ~2Corinthians 1:3

I am so sorry I could not be there for the family during this time of sorrow, but am recuperating from bronchitis and phenumonia. My thought and prayers are with the family at this time.
