My deepest sympathy to the Family of Raymundo. My brief time knowing him will be remebered as his sweet smile and they way he taught me how to say his last name! His kind patience was remarkable with me. He will be missed.
Rev 21:3-5 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 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.”
5 And the One seated on the thronej said: “Look! I am making all things new.”k Also he says: “Write, for these words are faithful* and true.”
