Dear Fisk Family: Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one, Roxine. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from the ones we love so much. The Bible reminds us that God sees our pain and sadness and has promised that soon, "death will be no more."(Revelation 21:4) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our precious loved ones to life again.(John 6:40) Until then I hope the beautiful memories of Roxine and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.
