Nikki Losing our loved ones is heartbreaking. Please know our Heavenly Father(Psalm 83:18)is near the brokenhearted, Psalm 34:18. He has promised to swallow up death forever, Isaiah 25:8. Please accept my condolences.

Mrs. Jordan To The Family, I want to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. I also want to share the comfort of John 5:28,29 where we are promised that those who have fallen asleep in death have the hope of receiving a "resurrection" back to life. Life on an earth restored to a beautiful paradise. Psalms 37:11 says, "The meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." While we await that wonderful time please find comfort in these promises.
