    My deepest sympathies to the Benedict Family for the loss of your love one Lawrence.  May your family find the endurance to cope with such a great loss and take comfort in the wonderful Hope our loving Father, Jehovah has provided for us through his Word, the Bible of life in the near future without sickness, pain, suffering, and death found at Psalm 33:24; Isaiah 25:8; and Revelation 21:4

    I am very sorry for your loss. At Psalms 147:3, it speaks of how "He (Jehovah God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds."
