To the friends and family of Ms. Burkholder,
We are truly sad for your loss. Our prayers and thoughts are frequent for those who suffer due to the anguish of losing a loved one. We all experience this loss but the Bible teaches that God shares your loss and your pain at Psalm 116:15.
The scriptures brought us comfort when we've lost loved ones and I hope it helps at this most difficult time. Because those who pass on are precious in Gods eyes, He's provided the scriptures to give comfort but also show us his plan for those who have entered rest. For comfort from the Bible please visit bit.ly/Deathjworg
