  2. I am so sorry for the loss of Rich. I really hope you can find some comfort from God’s word, it can give us comfort and hope that some day there will be no more death. At Revelation 21:4 it says, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.’�
