Dear Family,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dear loved one. Our loving Creator never planned for death to be part of his original plan. There is such a loving scripture found at Revelation 21: 3 & 4 which reads:
With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say " Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, And they will be his people, And God himself will be with them, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. The Former things have passed away "
I hope these words help you find comfort and also give you hope for our near future.

Ms. Stephanie

Sending my condolences to the Queen family for the loss of your dear loved one. May you find comfort from the bible scriptures at Acts 24:15 that “there is going to be a resurrection” and John 5:28, 29 that holds out a hope of being reunited with your loved one. God hates death and views it as an enemy. Soon he will conquer that enemy that brings sorrow and mourning to families everywhere. (1 Corinthians 15:26)
