Deepest condolences for Carol's friends and family. I hope you can find comfort in the scriptures at Acts 24:15 where Jehovah God promises a resurrection of our loved ones. Surely we can all look forward to a time where we could live forever on the earth in perfect health, without pain or death, as brought out in Psalm 37:29 & Revelation 21:4.
