1 thought on “Sara Moffitt Perkins”

  1. Perkins Family, losing a loved one in death can be very difficult, so I would like to share an encouraging scripture with you. The scripture is found at Revelation 21:3,4. Here the Bible speaks of a time when all the terrible things we deal with today, including death, will be done away with. Yes, God has promised to rid the earth of all the pain and suffering we endure today. Many people look forward to the promise being fulfilled, and find it comforting to know that this will take place. I hope this message finds you well, and brings the family comfort during this difficult time.
