    Death brings sorrow and tears, and it is hard to adjust to the absence of a loved one. But what comfort and strength we gain from the assurance that our Almighty God “will actually swallow up death forever (Isaiah 25:8). May the God who “binds up the broken hearted” and “comforts all who mourn” strengthen the family of Jack during this difficult time. (Isaiah 61:1,2)
