The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Seldom can we find the words to console the pain. The Bible provides us so much comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4, calls God "the God of all comfort". Just imagine being comforted by a God that gives us what we need at just the right time. Isiah 25:8 and 1 Corinthians 15:26 lets us know 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.
