    To the Leap family: Please accept my condolences for your recent loss. May you find comfort in God’s word the Bible. At Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever.” It was not our God’s purpose for us to get sick or die. He has made loving provisions to remove suffering and death from us forever.
    May the hope and promises in this Scripture bring you comfort and strength to endure the difficult days ahead.
    Please visit (Search comfort)
