The Edmonds Family Death can bring many tears and pain. I would like to share something we have personally found to be comforting. The Bible at Revelation 21:3, 4, states 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.
