 May you find comfort in this verse during this your time of sorrow knowing others care and pray you have strength in the days ahead. At Isaiah 25: 8 and it reads, "He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, For Jehovah himself has spoken it." This gave our family comfort and hope. JR
