I'm sorry for your loss. Certainly the death of one we dearly love is very saddening. I too have experienced such heart break over someone near and dear to me. Revelation 21:4 has provided comfort for me, where is says "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore"

I am sorry to hear about Ed's passing. I know he was ready. He has lead a long , fulfilling life with all his girls. Our lives were enriched by the georgi family. Our daughters had lasting friends, I had a wonderful garden partner, and Ed walked the neighborhood with his wry sense of humor to share with all. He has a legacy to be proud of. Rest in Peace , dear friend.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. And also please find comfort in Jehovah's words at Isaiah 41:13. Sincerely Rebecca
