    I am very sorry that death has robbed your family of someone you loved. In the Bible there are many scriptures that provide comfort. Our heavenly father knows your distress. Jehovah our GOD is referred to as the “The Father of tender mercies and the GOD of all comfort.” Please read 2 Cor 1:3-4, Psalms 34:18 and Isaiah 65:2 for words of comfort at what must be one of the most difficult times of your lives.

    I am deeply sorry for your loss! I had Mrs. Fisher as a junior high teacher and met Shirlene years later and we hit it off instantly. When I worked at kfc she would come thru in her yellow car with her grandson and we would just cut up and I would see her at a church function and we just enjoyed one another. Family you are in my thoughts and prayers. God will see you thru this

    Sorry for your loss. Death is spoken of as an "enemy" at 1 Cor. 15:26. That enemy is soon to be eliminated as God promises at Rev. 21:3,4. May you find comfort in the bible accounts of ressurections that Jesus performed. Those that he raised were reunited with their families.
