Dear Family,
Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. Because death is a sting that can cause much grief and heartache, Almighty God gives us His reassuring words in the Bible at Psalm 34:18 that He is near to those broken at heart and He saves those crushed in spirit. For this reason, He promises at Revelation 21:4, 5 at His appointed time, to end all sickness, death, pain and sorrow forever. What a wonderful day that will be!
