I am sorry to hear about Nancy. It is my prayer that you all find a measure of comfort by reflecting on God’s promises for our future. In Isaiah 33:24 we are assured , “And no resident will say: “I am sick.” We can trust fully in our loving God because he always keeps his word. Nothing will stop him from accomplishing his will.
