Although we don’t know you personally, please accept our deepest sympathy.. you probably feel like the Psalmist at Psalms 119:28–“I weep with grief. My heart is heavy with sorrow. Encourage and cheer me with your words.” I Corinthians 15:26 says death is our enemy and it truly is. However Revelation 21:3 & 4 says there will be an end to death. May you be comforted by these words of Jesus. Prayerfully yours, John and Elaine
