    My heart goes out to the family! When we lose a loved one at a time when it seems their life has just begun it is extremely difficult. Death is unnatural and not a part of God’s original purpose, so for good reason the Bible calls death an enemy- one that God through Jesus Christ will soon eliminate (1 Corinthians 15:26). May this hope bring the family comfort during this difficult time. Click on the link for more comforting thoughts:
