1 thought on “Serena Frances Sheffield”

  1. Dear Sheffield family, you have my deepest sympathy. The loss of a loved one brings great pain and sorrow but you can have comfort. In Gods word the bible it says at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 “The God of all comfort, comforts us in all our trials”. Also Acts 24:15 says “There is going to be a resurrection”.
    Our loving Heavenly Father promises these things and he will do them. I hope this brings a measure of comfort to the family.
