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.

Would that words were able to soothe the searing devastation you are going through. We know from experience that comfort in grief does not come easily. Damian was precious to us as a son-in-law, even though it was for only a short time. As we hold you in our hearts, we believe that Damian and Adam are together in peace and love as one at last.
