My deepest sympathies to your family. Revelation 21:4 gives us hope & tells us that one day soon death, pain, and suffering will be eliminated. We eagerly look forward to that day. In the meantime, your family is in our thoughts.

Please accept my deepest sympathy for I too know the pain of losing someone you love. May your family find comfort as I have in knowing that our loving heavenly Father promises us that very soon he will 'swallow up death forever, and certainly wipe the tears from all faces.' (Isaiah 25:8) What a wonderful day that will be!

Jamie and family,
You are in our thoughts and prayers during this time of loss. Remember all the memories of your mom. I remember when she use to come and take care of Addison after she was born. She was such an amazing and caring person. All were blessed to have known her.
