    To the family and loved ones of Cody Allen Kinney, I am so sorry for your loss. God offers comfort to those who grieve, too, at 2 Corinthians 1:2-4. Then he makes some amazing promises in John 11:24, 25 and Revelation 21:1-4. I hope that when you read these in your Bible that they will bring you comfort. (JW. ORG) sTEVE
