The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Although this is a very sad time for the family, the Bible does provide us with much comfort. The Bible at Revelation 21:3, 4, and Isaiah 25:8, states that God will do away with all the causes we have for suffering, as well as sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted us and it is our hope that these thoughts will comfort you and your family.
