From Lid...

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Margaret. The time when a loved one passes is always with sorrow. May we all look forward to the time spoken of in the Bible when things such as pain, sickness and death are done away with (Revelation 21:3, 4). My thoughts and condolences are with the family at this time.
