I wish to express my deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone cannot ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he(GOD) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our love ones we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected John 5:28-29. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days
