  1. Our deepest condolences are with you in your time of grief. May you continue to find comfort in the memories that you all shared together and get comfort from knowing one day Sickness will be no more and Death will be a thing of the past. In times of grief such as these, We find it comforting to meditate on the words found in the Bible at Job 14:14, 15. Job expressed his faith that God would bring him back to life if he should fall asleep in death as he said: All the days of my compulsory service I shall wait, until my relief comes. You will call, and I myself shall answer you.” The scriptures indicate that it is possible to be reunite with your loved one in the near future, right here on earth under peaceful, righteous conditions. Psalms 37:10, 11 offers us this promise. Our sincere condolences to your entire family.
