I am so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. Revelation 21: 4 promises, "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.” May this promise prove to be of some comfort to you.

Dear Taylor Family: Losing a father and brother to death is one of the hardest things that we ever have to deal with. Thankfully love is God's dominant quality. He loves us so much that he gave his only begotten Son so that we may live. Life is what God purposed, not death. Soon he will swallow up death forever and remove all things that cause pain and suffering Until that time comes please take comfort in God and in each other.
