  1. Dear McFerrin family, you have my condolences in this time of bereavement. The loss of a loved one brings great pain and sorrow but you can have comfort in this difficult time. That comfort comes from Gods word the Bible. At
    2 Corinthians 1:3,4 it calls God, “The God of all comfort and he comforts us in all our trials”, what a loving God. And Acts24:15 says “There is going to be a resurrection” so you can see your loved one again. I hope this gives you a measure of comfort.
