    Dear family, My heart aches from the grief that you are suffering. Knowing of God's embracing love for you, continue looking to him when " He will wipe out all tears from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. " - Revelation 21: 3,4 He says death is an " enemy that will be brought to nothing. " 1 - Corinthians 15:26 It comforts our hearts to know this pain will be a thing of the past and through Christ the resurrection of our loved ones. We " do not sorrow just as the rest do who have no hope! " 1 Thessalonians 4:13 love from a stranger,
