    Dear family members of Alberta Townsend, 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
