  1. Nickie and family:
    So sorry to hear of your loss. It is rare indeed for me to be at a loss for words, but all I can do is put you in our prayers and encourage you to find the inner peace to deal with such a tragedy.
    Be strong and may God bless all.

  2. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
    My sincere condolences to the Clancy family, friends and relatives of Matthew on the loss of your dear loved one.
    May these words of Revelation 21:4 from our Heavenly Father Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) give you a measure of comfort and strength to endure during this time of grief and deep sorrow.
    The Bible promises at Acts 24:15 of a resurrection and John 5:28,29 gives us a real hope of being reunited with our dead loved ones.
