To the Family of Barbara Tolley: I was saddened to read of the loss of your loved one.   When we lose our loved one in death it is the most difficult time  in our life.   However, there is loving comfort in Psalms 55:22 “throw your burden on God and he will sustain you..”  Yes, no matter what you are facing God is there to help you get through it. May you continue to have the love and support from family and friends.  I sincerely hope that this Bible message brings you a measure of comfort during this difficult time.
