Dear Family

I’m so sorry to read of the loss of your dear loved one. Death is hard on its own but when it’s unexpected it can be the toughest to endure. There’s a beautiful scripture found at 1 Corinthians 15:26.. it speaks of how soon death will be destroyed. Please accept my heartfelt condolences as you allow this scripture and ones found at Isaiah 25:8 to comfort you during this difficult time.

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.
