I did not know Mr. Walker but I know how hard it can be to lose a loved one in death so I wanted to say I am very sorry for your loss. The scripture that has given me comfort at times like this is the one found at Revelation 21:4 that says, \"And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.\" So God has promised that in the very near future we will never have to experience the pain associated with death anymore. I pray that this gives the family some comfort during this difficult time.
