I am truly sorry for your loss. May the true God watch over your family during this most grievous time. May you find comfort from the words found in

To the Durden Family, you have my greatest sympathy during these very difficult time.
The lost of a loved one is very painful. God tells us at Revelation 21:4 that the time is coming when pain and suffering will be no more. This is a promise that will be fulfilled right here on earth, because there have been NO pain and suffering in heaven.
May the God of all comfort, comfort you in this difficult time.
