  • My deepest condolences to the family for your loss. Our Heavenly Father gives us a comforting thought when He tells us that soon death will be “swallowed up forever.” (1 Cor. 15:54) Along with this, God also promises that ones who have died will be able to live again. (John 5:28,29) I hope these encouraging scriptures can bring you some comfort during this difficult time.

  • Dear Belinda — My heart aches for you and your family. I know how much you loved your Mom, and how much you meant to her. May it help to know that you have friends who care. I will deliver hugs in person, but for right now, please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Susie Huggins/Fredericktown
