    My deepest sympathies to your family. God can sustain your family though this difficult time. Take comfort in the scriptures, such as Rev. 21:4 says that one day soon God “will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” We all look forward to that time. May you find comfort in your memories of Ms. Cuevas and the Bible-based hope of the resurrection mentioned in the scriptures. (Acts 24:15) Your family is in our thoughts.
