  1. To the family: I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort from the scriptures to get you through this difficult time. 2Cor 1:3,4

  2. I recently heard of the loss of your loved one. The words escape us to express our sympathy. May our loving heavenly Father help you to cope with the sorrow you face and may he help you to recall the joys you got to share with your loved one likewise celebrating the life they enjoyed.
    Comfort is difficult to find in such distressing times such as this; however, in the pages of the Bible, God offers comfort and hope. I would like to share just one that I personally find of comfort as I too face such heartbreaking times.
    Isaiah 25:8 “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. …”
    I hope you find comfort from this scripture. I read this each time I am grieving my loved one and it captures my heart as though God had put his arms around me to dry my tears and give me a hug
