Words of comfort to the family may be expressed at www.sibillefuneralhomes.com. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Sibille Funeral Home of Opelousas.
Although I do not know the family personally, my thoughts are with them during this time of grief. The Bible holds out a wonderful hope for our dear loved ones that have fallen asleep in death at John 11:25. Also, Revelation 21:4 gives us hope that in the near future all sickness and death will be done away with forever. My hope is that these scriptures bring the family comfort during this time of great sorrow.
