    To the family and loved ones of Mr. Morey, who we know will be dearly missed. Almighty God promised at Revelation 21:4 that he will wipe away all our tears. Death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. So, you can take great comfort from drawing close to God in prayer. He will help sustain and support all of you to endure during these difficult times. My deepest condolences.
