    Please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of your beautiful mother, grandmother and sister. May you find encouraging the words found in the Bible at Revelation 21:4, where God promises us that very soon he will do away with death and sickness from the Earth forever, and then he will resurrect Sharon to perfect life here on Earth, surrounded by family and friends, which has always been God’s purpose for mankind and for the Earth.
