Edward, Mark, Michael my heart goes out to you, family and friends during this sad and difficult time. Please find comfort from Isaiah 33:24 - "And no resident will say: I am sick.” God never intended mankind to get sick, grow old or die. Rev 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. The former things have passed away.” 1 Corinthians 15:26 "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." Soon almighty God, Jehovah promises to resurrect those lost in death. (John 5:28,29) So while you grieve now for your lost loved one, allow God’s word to comfort and stregthen you while you eagerly await the day you can see your loved once again. The best is yet to come!
I was saddened to hear of the passing of you dad. He was a great friend to my mom and dad. (John and Virgie). I remember he and I working on my parents front yard together when they moved into the house in the mainlands. He was such a nice man and I know he will be greatly missed by you all.
