    I thank the good Lord that we will see each other some bright morning where we will live together forever where there will be no more sickness

    Dear family and loved ones, please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. It has helped me and many others to know that the Bible promises that soon God “will swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:8) . May “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,” comfort you during your time of sadness. (2 Corinthians 1: 3)
