    I am so sorry for your loss. May “the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God’s Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.

    I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. I know we all long to see an end to the suffering we experience today. I receive great encouragement from the beautiful words found at Isaiah 25:8 “He will actually swallow up death forever…and certainly wipe the tears from all faces.” I hope this will bring your family comfort during this difficult time.
