I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother, Carol. My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of loss.
Another comforting Scripture, one of my personal favorites, is Revelation 21:4. It speaks of world conditions under God‚Äôs Kingdom rule. It says: ‚ÄúAnd he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.‚Äù A most reassuring promise indeed! I hope these verses comfort you like they have comforted me. My heart and prayers go out to you.
