Out of all the trials we must bear this is by far one of the hardest , the death of a dear loved one. May you find comfort in knowing God cares for you all, (1Peter 5:6,7). And he will help you during this difficult time. Acts 24:15 tells us there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous. Therefore the Bible gives us the hope of seeing our loved ones again. We are extending our deepest sympathy to the Triplett family.
