A scriptural thought of encouragement:

Revelations 21:3,4 God will wipe out every tear from our eys, crying, pain, sorrowing and even death will be done away with. What a wonderful hope to look forward to.

But today we can be helped because of Jehovah God's tender mercies that can get us by each day of our pain/grief.

I am sorry for the loss of your loved one, Donna.


Again, I extend my sympathy.
