    Dear family, I am deeply saddened by the grief you are feeling.
    Knowing of God’s embracing love for you, continue looking to him when ” he will wipe out all tears from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. ” – Revelation 21:3,4
    He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. ” – 1 Corinthians 15:26
    How it comforts our hearts to know that this pain will be a thing of the past and through Christ a resurrection for our loved ones.

    love from a stranger,
