I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I want to send you my sympathy's. I know it can be hard to find comfort at a time like this. That's why I wanted to share something that I found to be comforting. It's the hope held out to us in the Bible at Revelations 21:3,4. I hope it brings you the same comfort it brings me.
