To the family of Ms. Macie, I am terribly sorry to hear of your loss. During such hard times, we could all use some comfort. God provides comfort to the fact He will soon "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." Soon all hurtful things will be things of the past and can truly enjoy life forever. Oh how wonderful that will be! Please hold tight to this promise and I hope that as this message finds you and that you are able to find peace and comfort.
