Dear Salmon Family, I am deeply sorry about your loss of Mr. Salmon. Please take comfort in the Bibles promise that soon all sickness, sorrow and even death will be a thing of the past as promised at Revelation 21:4. Other Bible verses show what God's Kingdom will accomplish such as Isaiah 33:24 when sickness will be gone and Jesus' words at John 5:28-29 of a resurrection of our loved ones. My prayer is that theses verses bring you comfort now and in the days to come. Sincerely Mrs. C. Santana.
