"I want to offer my condolences to the Covington family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose someone very precious, especially when they are so young; yet, no one else really knows all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. He calls death an enemy and that “he will swallow up death forever”( Isaiah 25:8). Job 14:15 says that our Creator is eager to awaken our love one from death. It says "You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands." What a joy it will be the see our love ones again! I hope these words give you all comfort."
