Celebrating the life of Mr. Jessie James McLeod
Thank you for signing Mr. Jessie James McLeod's Guestbook
I am so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. There is a very comforting scripture found at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away al of the tears. So we can look forward to a time when death will be done away with forever. I hope that this scripture can bring some comfort during this time.
