My deepest condolences to the family for this tremendous loss. May the words found at Isaiah 26:19 bring you comfort in knowing that you will one day see Brenda again. Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life"

We are so sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a loved one isn't easy. Our loving God invites us at 1 Peter 5:7 " to throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you." May God give you courage and strength to sustain you in the days ahead. At John 5:28,29 Jesus spoke about a resurrection for our loved ones. These verses helped me to cope with the death of my brother and father may it do the same for you and your family. JR
