Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your dear loved one, Ralph.
Take comfort in a promise from God found at Isaiah 25:8 ; "He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord, Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." We are reassured of this promise at Revelation 21:4 ; "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..." I hope you were comforted by these thoughts today. For more information please visit
