Linda To the Family. Losing a love one in death is a trying time for all. I just want to give the family some comfort and hope from God's word, which gives the assurance that one day we will see our dear love ones again. ACTS 24:15 And I have a hope toward God, which hope these(men) themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteuos and the unrighteous. Certainly while we await for these wonderful promise, I hope the family truly find comfort knowing this wonderful hope from Gods word.

The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Words cannot console when we have loss someone we love in death. I would like to share something I have personally found to be comforting. The Bible at Revelation 21:3, 4, and Isaiah 25:8 state that God will do away with all 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 as well.
