    Sending my condolences to you and the family. Grieve over your loss. The Bible says that there is “a time to weep.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4)…The Bible also promises a time when God “will swallow up death forever.”—Isaiah 25:8. These two scriptures of many have always bought me comfort in my times of sadness and sorrow and I hope they do the same for you and your family.

    My dear friend Lora – I pray that your strength in the Lord and that of your family will be greatly increased in this difficult time. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
