Hello, my name is Rebecca. I am from the Potsdam area, and I wanted to say to the friends and family of Elaine. Beggs, that I am deeply sorry for your loss. I also wanted to share a little word of encouragement.

There is a lovely scripture that always helped me through difficult times. It's found in Revelation 21:4. It speaks of God's promise for the earth and everyone on it. It says, "And he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

Isn't that a beautiful promise? No more sickness and death will occur on the earth underneath God's Kingdom. If you would like to learn more about God's future hope, please contact me at carbo96@icloud.com. Thank you.
