To the families and loved ones of Mr Edge,who we know will be dearly missed. Almighty God promised at revelation 21:4 that he will wipe away all our tears. And death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. So,you can take great comfort in drawing close to God in prayer. And he will help sustain and support your families to endure in these difficult times and months to follow. My deepest condolences to all of your loved ones.
