Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. Words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one. May you find hope and comfort in knowing that, soon, by means of God's Kingdom, no one will ever fall prey of these ruthless enemies, such as sickness and death (Isaiah 33:24; 1 Corinthians 15:26). Although Mrs. Mefford has fallen asleep in death, we all can not wait for the day when she will be reunited with her family and friends who loved her dearly (John 5:28,29).
