Uncle Ski was one-of-a-kind. He will be greatly missed. We all loved him very much.
I am so sorry for your loss. May reading these scriptures be of encouragement to you and your family. Isaiah 33:24, and 25:8, tell us that Thw God of Lov will bring an end to sickness and death. Gods son Jesus Christ, while here on earth spoke about the resurrection hope. (John 5:28,29) That means that we will have the opportunity to see our loved ones again. What will conditions be like when the above scriptures are fulfilled. Please read Psalms 37:10,11,29,and 72:7,8. In Matthew 6:10, Jesus Christ encouraged us to pray for Gods Kingdom to come so that his Will, will be done here on earth. This is the only Government that will bring an end to all human suffering.
