    May your family find comfort in this difficult time in the God of all comfort (Psalm 83:18) and draw strength and comfort from this wonderful promise held out at Revelation 21:3&4.

    My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Taylor. Please find comfort in our Heavenly Fathers promise for the future found in Isaiah 25:8. There he promises to "swallow up death forever" and to "wipe away the tears from ALL faces." Yes, soon God will eliminate death forever and restore humans to a beautiful paradise earth, where we can all live forever! (Psalms 37:29) I hope these wonderful thoughts can bring you comfort during this extremely difficult time.
