  1. Dear Davis Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss, and would like to share a scripture with you. The scripture is found at Revelation 21:3,4 which says that God will one day rid the earth of all the terrible things we see today, including death. This is a promise God has made to all of mankind. I hope this message is comforting during this difficult time.
