Dear Vicki and Family, We are so sorry for your loss. "Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our Sorrows". Lord God, we pray that you pour out your Healing Grace upon Vicki and her dear family, your Graces of Strength, your Graces of your loving comforting presence. We ask you Lord God to send your Holy Angels to administer to Vicki and her family and give them peace. May Glenn rest in God's loving embrace. Our love and prayers are with you.Revelation 22 "Then He showed me the River of the Water of Life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the Tree of Life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. There shall no more be anything accursed, but the Throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His Servants shall worship him, they Shall see His Face, and His Name shall be on their foreheads. And night shall be no more; they need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their Light, and they shall reign for ever and ever."
