    I know words cannot heal your broken hearts. Bless his heart, I remember how Larry overcame his other illness. He was a fighter and now he will be a warrior for Jesus. I know you all will miss him, but he will be in a better place and be a guardian angel watching over y’all now. May God comfort you both and give you peace to go through this sad journey. Love and prayers.

    I am so sorry to hear of the your loss. Death is truly an enemy. (1 Cor 15:26) However, this verse contains the hope that we all look forward to when this enemy “will be brought to nothing.” Until that time, be assured that your pain is shared by many, including God, who makes the promise to “swallow up death in victory”. (Isaiah 25:8) May this hope comfort you in your time of grief.
