1 thought on “Almon Thompson”

  1. Dear Kennedy Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss and I would like to share an encouraging scripture with you. The scripture is found at Revelation 21:3,4 and speaks of a time when God will rid the earth of all the terrible things we endure now, even death. Yes, there will a time when we will no longer have to suffer with the things we do today. Many find this promise from God comforting. I hope this message is a source of encouragement and comfort during this difficult time.
