I am so sorry for your loss. May the God of All Comfort be with you during this difficult time. I have personally found comfort in the promise of 1st Corinthians 15:26 where it states that soon death will be brought to nothing. Then we will have the prospect of being reunited with our loved ones right here on earth(John 5:28,29).
I truly hope this brings you comfort and peace. My deepest sympathies for you all

So sorry to read of the passing of Mr. Jeffery Daniel Strong but the loving memories shared by his family bring much comfort. As you cherish his memory so tenderly, trust in the words of Isaiah 25:8 which will give you more reasons to look for a brighter future without the things that cause hurt to us.
