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. Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3, 4 let us know that death is an enemy that will be done away with, because we know that God cannot lie. These thoughts have brought us much comfort, and it is our hope that they will comfort you and your family, also.
