    After 8 months I still feel sorrow for the Tisak family my thoughts and prayers for you all. Bless you all forever. Jessica is an angel and she is watching over us all not just her immediate family and friends but people like me who acquainted with her on facebook.

    My deepest condolence to the entire family for the unfortunate loss of your dear loved one Jessica.The Bible gives us much comfort in knowing the future promise made by God. Revelations 21:4,5 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.” Yes God has promised to remove death and pain. God also has promised us the hope of seeing our deceased loved ones agin, Acts 24:15 say “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous”. Again i express my deepest condolences and i hope you and your family find comfort in these scripture and knowing the promises of God. Visit for more comfort.
