Condolences to the family

Dear Linda and family, so very sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers to all.

I have so many good childhood memories of sweet Pammy. I am excited to see her in heaven some day when she has no limitations and we can run, dance, and laugh together. She used to watch us do those things when we were young.

My sincere condolences go out to your family. Losing a loved one is definitely one of the hardest things we have to go through. The Bible however does give us comfort in such times. (Revelation 21:3,4) It’s so encouraging to hear that all these painful things we have to go through are just temporary, and God promises it will all be wiped away! I hope this scripture can bring your family comfort during this difficult time.
