at this time of grief i would like to extend my sincere condolences for the family. at revelations 21:3,4 it says, With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” i hope that brings some peace of mind in this time of loss.
