I wish to express my condolences in the death of your loved one. The Bible at Acts 24:15 promises a resurrection of our loved ones and death will be no more. Revelation 21:3 & 4. What a wonderful hope we can look forward to. Psalm 36:9 tells us that God is the source of life. I hope that these words from the Bible will bring you comfort at this difficult time. My prayers are with you and your family.

My condolence to the family & friends of Mary Givens. It is obvious from the kind words that Mrs. Givens will be fondly remembered. As you cherish the many memories, reflect on the time when sickness & death will be conditions of the past! (Revelation 21:3,4; 1Corinthians 15: 26) A promise our loving God Jehovah has made & Jesus Christ himself guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19) May God’s word, the thoughts & prayers of others, comfort & strengthen you each day, as we await the fulfillment of his promises! (Joshua 23:14)
