    I’m so sorry for the loss of this woman. My condolences go out to the Sharpes family. There’s a Scripture I’d love to share that always comforted me when I lost someone close to me in death. It’s in Revelation 21:4 which causes says: “And he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither wklll mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This is a promise from God they he will end death forever in the future and we will see our loved ones again!

    Sis & Fred, May love and care of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead. Our most sincere condolences
