Our sincere condolences to the family. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, words alone cannot ease the pain of our loss. The Bible helps us to deal with our grief (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). We can also find hope from Jesus words at John 5:28, 29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” I hope these scripture bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.

To the family: While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, I pray Jehovah God sustains you at this time of such great loss - Psalms 34:18,19. May you find comfort in the resurrection hope - Acts 24:15
