May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding guard your heart and mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7) During the time of your loss may you find comfort in this scripture. Ms Harris has such a kind face and I think I would have enjoyed knowing her well. This truly is a time for celebrating the life of Evelyn Harris.

Sorry to hear of the loss of such a dear friend and family member. Times like these can be hard but it is of great encouragement to think of the wonderful promise the bible holds for all mankind at Isaiah 25:8, which says "8 He will swallow up death forever,And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth." What a wonderful day that will be! Again, I offer my sincere condolences and hope this will help you when feeling down.
