I am truly sorry for your loss. When we are faced with unbearable pain, we can find comfort in the hope found in the Bible. God promises to comfort us in all our trials. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) He promises that those who have fallen asleep in death will have the prospect of living forever in paradise. “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection.“ (Acts 24:15) There will be a resurrection, and those who are brought back will not worry about sickness, pain, or death. (Revelation 21:4) May this hope comfort your greiving hearts at this difficult time.

I worked with Barb several years ago. I first started my Nursing practice at Miller's. Barb encouraged me to take a certification class with her. My daughter and I also took Missy the cat. I respected and admired Barb. May God give you peace at this time.
