    My sincerest condolences to the family and dear friends of Mrs. McGraw. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. When coping with the death of my loved one, I found that relying on the God of all comfort surely helps you through this difficult time. He never wants to see us suffer, emotionally or physically, and that's why 1 Peter 5:7 states, "Throw your anxiety on him, because he cares for you." Allow God to bear all of your pain and heartache. Another thing that helped me is the loving hope that our Heavenly Father has given us. The hope of an earthly resurrection in the near future. (Acts 24:15) So may that give you a measure of solace right now. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. With much love, Kelsey Sheffield
