We are sorry to hear about your loss. Sickness has robbed us of our loved ones resulting in their death. May these scriptures bring you all comfort. Isaiah 33:24 promises ,"And no resident will say: “I am sick.” The people dwelling in the land will be pardoned for their error." When Jesus was on earth he healed the sick and raised the dead. At John 11:25 "Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life." What a wonderful hope we can look forward to and may God strengthened you in the days ahead. JR
