I am so sorry to the friends and family who lost a very loved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Nothing is heartbreaking as losing the people we love to death. I hope everyone is able to find some comfort even though we are living in troubled times where we can't embrace each other as freely as we would like to. I hope you can find comfort in Revelation 21:3,4 as I do when experiencing a loss of a loved one.
