I'm sorry for your loss, losing a sibling is a difficult thing to have to endure. Something I look foreword to is the time where Isaiah 25:8 promises that death will be swallowed up forever! I hope this gives you comfort too.

Friends and Family,
Although I did not know her personally I do know the feeling of loss all too well. During this time of distress many don't know where to look. I have always found it comforting to look to the Bible.
Revelation 21:3,4 talks about a time when we will get to see our loved ones again. They will no longer be in pain, be sick, or sad. Isn't that a wonderful thought?
Please accept my condolences.
