Dear Ishman Family, I want to express my condolence. Almighty God provides comfort and a positive hope for the future on earth in the Bible at Revelation 21:3-5.Jehovah God states at Isaiah 55:11;'So my word that goes out of my mouth will be. It will not return to me without results. And it will have sure success in what I send it to do.' May these scriptures comfort your family and friends.
