I want to express my heartfelt condolence to the family and friends of Mr. Glen Renfro. May the the God of all comfort, who is Jehovah, bring comfort to your family. He is the closest friend you can have and “he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7). God himself hates death and made a promise in Revelation 21:4 that says that he'll “wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” May he give you and your family comfort for your loss.
