The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Words cannot console when we have lost someone we love in death. The Bible provides the finest basis for encouragement. It lets us know that death is an enemy that will be done away with according to 1 Corinthians 15:26 and Revelation 21:3, 4. I hope this message will bring you and your family some comfort.
