    Dear Family,
    “May you have undeserved kindness and peace from God our Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may comfort those in any sort of tribulation through the comfort with which we ourselves are being comforted by God.”—
    2Corinthians 1:2-4; God does comfort us with the grand resurrection hope when He says in Revelation 21:4; “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more the former things have passed away.” What a God of tender mercies!
    Sincerely Yours, Judy L.
