For the family....
I recognized this photo right away as I read the paper...as I took care of her temporarily as a Patient. I will never forget her gentle smile...and I was SO impressed by her loving and kind daughter who stayed with her overnight. It warms my heart to see someone SO loved and SO cherished...as this dear lady was.
May the family be blessed with comfort, acceptance and understanding.

It is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Daniela. Please accept my condolences and know that our loving God is keenly aware of your distressing pain. The Bible shows that in due time, He will eliminate all suffering on earth, including death. Therefore, you can appreciate how the Bible further stresses the fact as you view this video link:
