    2 Corinthians 5:6-8 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

    Dear family members of Yolanda Nealy, so very sorry to notice that your dear one has passed away. It's wonderful that the Bible holds out the prospect of everlasting life in a perfect world with no sickness, death, mourning outcry or pain. Revelation 21:3-5 is very comforting please share it together as a family. Sincerely TL
