To Alexa family:
I extend my sincere condolence to you for the loss of Alexa. Death is such a painful thing to endure. Fortunately Almighty God has promised to eliminate sickness,pain and death. And to restore life to many who've died Acts chap 25 verse 15. This he will do when Gods Kingdom with Jesus as King rules this earth. So while you'll miss Alexa, remember the promise of the God who can't lie Titus chap 1 verse 2. I'll pray for your family.

December 22nd, 2016
