I lost a very good friend Thursday, and I am so very sad. Betty was like a dear sister to me and I will truly miss my beautiful friend. I met the family and came to love tnem also. Family God has promised us a better life later. This scripture found at Revelation 21:3-4 gives me hope, I hope you find some measure of peace when you read it. You are in my prayers.
