    My deepest condolences for your loss. I hope you are able to find comfort in the scriptures at Acts 24: 15 and John 5: 28,29 which gives us a resurrection hope. At Revelation 21: 3-5 God brings out that in the future there will be no more pain and suffering. And we can look forward to what is written in Psalm 37: 9-11 and 29 about the meek will possess the earth. To find more information please visit

    My sincere condolences to the Wiggs family. Losing a loved one is one of the most grievous things to bare and one hardly knows what to say to ease ones sorrow. I pray that you are comforted in knowing that the Bible assures us that those who are asleep in death are not suffering. May you look forward to the fulfillment of God's promise to undo the pangs of sickness and death forever, Isaiah 33:24 and Revelation 21:4. Imagine the time when all those who are asleep in death, who are in God's memory will return to life as promised at John 5:28, 29. Young and in perfect health and reunited with loved ones, Psalms 37:29, 34. See for more scriptural encouragement. May family, friends and faith in the God' of all comfort strengthen you during this very difficult period.

    I have been delivering mail to Mrs Wiggs for a few years now. She was such a joy to see when she was out doing some yard work. I will miss seeing her smile. So sorry for your loss. She will be remembered fondly
