I am sorry for the loss of your dear Maggie. May you find comfort in The promise recorded for us as Isaiah 25:8 where it says “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. Until that time, may you continue to draw strength from God, family and friends. All the best wishes for your family at this time, take care.
