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.

When the head of the family dies, the heartache and grief can be great. I hope that you can be comforted knowing that God cares for you and sees your pain. ( 1 Peter 5:7) "He is close to the brokenhearted and He saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18) May you find comfort and relief during this grievous time, as you cherish the precious memories.
