  1. Revelations 21:3-7

    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.” 5 And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new.” Also, he says: “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” 6 And he said to me: “They have come to pass! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To anyone thirsting, I will give from the spring of the water of life free

  2. To the family,

    My condolences go out to you at this very difficult time. Losing someone that means so much to you is very hard, so I hope you can find comfort from the words at Psalms 34:18 and 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.
