  1. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family and friends. I am so sorry for your loss. Please take comfort in knowing that our loving and caring Heavenly Father knows your pain. (Psalms 83:18, 2 Corinthians 1:3).
    He promises us that very soon, "He will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain will be anymore." Revelation 21:3,4.
    May you find comfort and strength in His promises.
