To the family and friends of Katherine A Rich., I am very sorry for your loss. During these difficult times God tells us that we can turn to him because he is the God of all comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 which says “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.”
