We're so sorry to hear about your loss. At Ecclesiastes 9:11,12 , it states,"I have seen something further under the sun,...because time and unexpected events overtake them all. For man does not know his time....when it suddenly overtakes them." At John 11:25, Jesus said ..."I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life." May these scriptures give you hope and comfort as they did our family. May God be your strength in the days to come.JR
