    Please accept my sincere condolences for the kids of David. No words could ever convey the pain of your heart but our loving Creator and Heavenly Father does know. He has promised that very soon this enemy death and the things that bring our heart pain will be a distant memory-Hosea 13:14. Until then please know that He is close to those broken at heart and those crushed in spirit he saves-Psalm 34:18. It is my hope that theses passages along with your loving memory of David comfort your heart and give you a measure of peace during this most difficult time.

    I’m sorry to hear about your loss and pain and wanted to share the Bible’s hope of a resurrection at John 5:28,29 at a time when there is no more sickness pain or death right here on earth according to Revelation 21.3,4.May the god of comfort give you comfort by means of the scriptures.
