To the Lanier family,. Although never had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Martha..I thought the words of our Heavenly Father Jehovah would provide a measure of comfort during your time of sorrow. Revelations 21:4 says “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry be any more. The former things have passed away.” This is a promise. Warm regards, Jill J.
