I am deeply sorry for your loss of Kevin. May you find comfort in the promise recorded for us at Isaiah 25:8 where it says “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” All the best wishes for your family during this difficult time, take care of each other.
