May the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. . .

Jessie Taylor, husband of Elsbeth, departed this life in faith today.  We lift up the family before the Lord even as we give thanks to the Lord who rescues us from death and bestows upon His children the gift of everlasting life.  He has fought the good fight of faith throughout four years of cancer and now, in Christ, he has won the battle and rests from his labors.  With him, we await the day of the Lord when He shall bring us and all the dead in Christ together and bring to completion all of His promises forevermore.  Arrangements are still being made.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 English Standard Version (ESV)

God of All Comfort
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
