Prayers for the family

Marsha Miles Nov 27 2016 12:00 AM

Our sincerest condolences to you and your family. We wanted to share a scripture that bought us comfort when we our brother and father both died. It's found at Revelation chapter 21: 3,4 it reads,"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. 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." Please know that others care and we pray that God may grant you strength in the days ahead.JR
