I am still in shock. My heart is so heavy, even though we lost touch over the few years your family and you had a place in my heart. The last time I heard from you was when my dad passed. You were like the older sister I never had. I just pray that God gives your family peace and comfort during this time.

George and Donna, please accept my heartfelt condolences. I remember meeting Lisa a couple of years ago when you all came to visit in Virginia. I fell in love with her spirit and warm personality right away. We talked about music and shared our interest on so many things. I still have the CD she made for me! I will always remember her beautiful smile. May God continue to bless you and your family during your time of bereavement. I will keep you all in my prayers.

I'm so sorry for your loss, it's painful to lose someone you love. I would like to share with you and your family and friends an encouraging message from the Bible. Revelation 21:4 promises us that he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain will be any more. The former things have passed away. You could be in pain right now but very soon God is going to turn things around and we know that for sure because the Bible gives us that promise. And the Bible is God`s word. Please read those scriptures with your Bible. I hope this message gives you courage during this time of bereavement.
