Dear Stephens family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Brenda. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

During this season of Easter & beyond, may Jesus our God of comfort, our risen Lord, richly bless you all as you remember Brenda's life legacy and celebrate her homegoing to Heaven. "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord'. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. Michael
