I would like to offer the sincere condolences of my family and I. So often in life things happen and we wonder how or why. I personally have found much comfort from the scriptures. One scripture that really helped me was Acts 24:15 where it helped to see that even though Adam and Eve fell short of pleasing God he put a plan in place. Through the ransom of Christ we have the hope of a ressurrection as mentioned in that verse. I hope these thoughts and verses provide a measure of comfort durring this difficult time.
