- Please accept my condolence to the families and friends of Betty McCoy. These are difficult times, but may the promise at Isaiah 25:8 gives you comfort in knowing that God will wipe away tears from all faces because it's never His will for mankind to mourn for the death of a loved one. Genesis 2:17; Romans 5:12
