Dear Thompson Family,I want to express my condolence. Almighty God provides comfort for all our trails in the Bible at 2Corinthians 1:3-4.Further, Revelation 21:3-5 states a positive hope for the future on earth.Isaiah 55:11 states- 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.
