    To the family of Mr. Edward Gately please accept my sincere condolence. We all face the loss of a dear loved one. At times like this I like to turn to the bible for comfort. The scripture at 2 Cor. 1:2,3 calls Jehovah the God of all comfort. May his love surround you at this time. I look forward to the fulfillment of Isaiah 33:24 which tells us that a time is coming when no one will say I am sick. Also, Rev. 21:3, 4 when death will be no more. It is my wish that these scriptures provide you with comfort. For more encouraging words please visit which will also provide ways to cope with grief. Again, I am sorry for your loss.
