  • I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to your family for the loss of your loved one, Aaron. Death is truly an enemy that robs us of the joy of being with our loved ones. The Bible provides a wonderful hope for our dead loved ones at Revelation 21:1-4. It states: “Neither will…pain be anymore.” What kind of pain does the Bible mean will be no more? All the mental, emotional, and physical pain that has resulted from sin and imperfection and made life miserable for countless millions will be no more. I sincerely hope that you will find this hope from the Bible comforting.

  • Ashley, I am so sorry for your loss. I had not heard and just happened upon it in the newspaper. Losing a family member is never easy, we just find ways to cope with the loss. Reading about your dad and judging by your character, I am sure that he was a wonderful man who will be waiting in heaven to see you again. Please let me know if you need anything.

  • Ashley,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your father. Our parents hold a very special place in our hearts forever and may you always be comforted with many cherished memories. I pray you and your family will be blessed with the peace and understanding that only God provides. In time our pain lessens and love remains. Keep your faith and you will have the strength and all that is ever needed.
    In deepest sympathy,
