    I am so sorry for the loss of Edward, there is little I can do or say to ease your pain and suffering. The grief that his death has caused is indescribable. Som scripture I have found comforting John 5:28, Revelation 21:3 & 4, they give us the hope that our loved ones will be resurrected to life in a paradise earth. May the fond memories of Edward comfort you and may God grant you the abilityntomendure.
