    Thoughts are with your sweet family! Grew up with both of them just behind us in church and so thankful to have had them both in my life.

    I wanted to reach out to you during this sad time to offer my condolences. While nothing will completely take away your grief, by meditating on God’s promises found in the Bible, you can find real hope and the strength to keep going. I have found the scripture at Isaiah 25:8 to be especially comforting. Here it promises that God “will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.”
