May the words at 1 Corinthians 15:26 be of comfort to the friends and family of Anna, where it says "the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing."

Your family has my deepest sympathy. I am so very sorry to learn of the loss of Ms. Anna, someone so beloved. I was thinking of something to say to ease the tremendous pain that your family is suffering. So I compiled this list of scriptures that is sure to bring you comfort in this difficult time: Psalms 55:22; Proverbs 3: 5 & 6; Isaiah 41:10; 2 Corinthians 1:3-7; James 4:8; and Revelation 21:4. Be strong. Cherish the memories. May the peace of God be with your family always. And, please, remember to call upon his name found at Psalms 83:18.
