My deepest sympathies to the McGraw's family on your recent loss. I know it's not easy to deal with at this moment. May you find comfort in God's word the Bible. At Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever." It was not our God's purpose for us to get sick or die. He has made loving provisions to remove suffering and death from us forever.May the hope and promises in this Scripture bring you comfort and strength to endure the difficult days ahead.

Danny, You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the family. Isaiah 33:24 mentions a wonderful future time when "no resident will say: I am sick." Until that time, may the God of all comfort support you in this time of sorrow. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4
