To The Harrelson Family: I am truly sorry for the loss of your dear love one. It is times like these, hearts are filled with pain and sorrow. However, please keep in mind God's promise found in the Bible at Revelation chapter 21, verse 4. It reads: "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." You have my sincere condolence.
