    I would like to offer my deepest condolences to family and friends. Losing a loved one is never easy. However, the Bible offers us a wonderful hope in that we will see these precious ones again soon. John 5:28: “… all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out “. Psalm 37:29 “The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it“. May the God of all comfort strengthen you during this difficult time. With deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers.

    My deepest sympathy to the family on the passing of your loved one. May God Almighty(Psalms 83:18) , the father of tender mercies comfort all of you. His word at John 5:25 tells us that there is hope of resurrection for our loved ones meaning that the dead will come back to life in the future so near now. May God (Psalms 83:18) whose promises never fail continue to strengthen you through the pages of His word the Bible, and keep the family together.
