  2. Sending my condolences to the Larkin family. During this extremely emotional time we are not alone. We all have experienced some type of loss of a loved one. God too lost his son Jesus Christ in death. (John 3.16) God is able to relate to what we are going through and gives much needed comfort. One of those comforts is the putting a end to all pain, suffering, outcry, and death itself. (Revelation 21:3 4) what a wonderful provision held for us in the near future. I hope that you will find comfort just as I have from these couple of scriptures. My prayers will be with your family.

  3. We are so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort, continue to be with you and your family during this difficult time, We all look forward to a time, when death will be no more-Rev 21:4. Our prayers are with you.
