The Edmonds Family We are truly sorry for your loss. Words cannot console when we have lost someone we love in death. The Bible brings us so much comfort. Revelation 21:3, 4 and Isaiah 25:8 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 bring comfort to you and your family.
