My deepest sympathy to the Blackwell family. Words seems to escape our minds during grievous times like this. I hope you find comfort in knowing that God is the โ€œFather of tender mercies and the God of all comfort.( 2 Corinthians 1:3,4). May our Heavenly Father tenderly hold and comfort you until He brings about a joyful future without tears and pain.( Revelation 21:3,4).
