Dear family members:

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. It is comforting to know during this time you can draw comfort from the scriptures. What is even more comforting, is the blessing of the end of death. What a marvelous provision almighty God has promise. (Rev. 21:3 & 4) He has promise to end death forever, and bring back those we love during the resurrection. Imagine seeing your family member again, right here on earth (John 5: 28 & 29).
