    My sincere condolences to the family of Sophia Cortez. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in God’s promise to soon “swallow up death forever” and “wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) While grief at the loss of Sophia is great, joy at welcoming her back in the resurrection will be greater. (Mark 5:42) With deepest sympathy.
