I'm truly sorry for your loss of your loved one. Nothing can prepare us for the grief we experience when we lose someone so special. May you gain comfort at this difficult time, 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the family. I know this loss must be difficult for you all. May you find real comfort knowing that God is "close to the broken-hearted ". This beautiful assurance is found in the Bible at Psalms 34:18. With sympathy, James.

I'm so sorry for your loss, it's painful to lose someone you love. I would like to share with you and your family and friends an encouraging message from the Bible. Revelation 21:4 promises us that he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain will be any more. The former things have passed away. You could be in pain right now but very soon God is going to turn things around and we know that for sure because the Bible gives us that promise. And the Bible is God`s word. Please read those scriptures with your Bible. I hope this message gives you courage during this time of bereavement.

I am so sorry for your loss. Death can be so hard to bear. But the memories of your loved one that you shared can bring comfort and so can the words from a loving father at.. Isaiah 41:13 which says.. " For I, Jehovah your God, am grasping your right hand,The One saying to you, ‘Do not be afraid. I will help you." Sincerely Rebecca.
