  25. I am very sorry to hear of your loss. The lost of a loved one grieves the heart and words are never enough to take away the pain. However, our Heavenly Father knows your grief. As a loving and caring Father, He will be there to comfort and sooth your “broken-heart and crushed spirit”. ( Psalm 34:18 ). May you find comfort and hope in God’s promise of a day when you will reunite with your loved one again. ( Isaiah 26:19 ). My sincere condolences to the family.

  26. To the Family of Kathleen, I very sorry to read of your loss. May you find a measure of comfort in family and friends at this most difficult time. I pray also that the Bible’s promise that soon, the Creator will put an end to all pain, suffering, and death by means of his son Jesus Christ will help you look toward the future with confidence (Revelation 21:3,4). The beautiful hope of being reunited with our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death is such a beautiful promise (John 5:28,29).
