During this most difficult time the scriptures serve as a comfort zone. 2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17; 2Corinthians 1:3, 4 Helping us to see that our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:4 I hope you find comfort in these promises. My deepest sympathy goes out to all the family.

I know the pain you feel now is hard to bear, but may the happier times of so many years, help calm the grief and pain that you feel. And when all things are said and done the God of mercy will be the one who will release our love ones from sickness and death. Isaiah 25:8. So please except my caring condolences and sympathy for your loss.

Love Stephanie & Sean Swann
