My deepest condolences to the family. We can always look to the Bible for comfort during these difficult times. God promises us at Revelation 21:3-4 that 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. May God comfort your family in your time of sorrow, as we await Gods promise that soon we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected according to John 5:28-29. With deepest sympathy.

I am sorry to hear about Margie's passing. She was a really sweet, kind, and loving lady. I will always remember her. I loved her cakes and want her family know my thoughts and prayers are with them at this time. She is with the Lord. Rejoicing. Love all of you. Lana H. Kiser

I hope that in due time you receive Gods peace that excels all thought, so that it will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. As you know, God is called the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. Rest assured that he cares for all his creatures and he would never bring us suffering. A soothing scripture is Psalm 34:18 which reads: Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves. Sincerely.
