  • Please except my sincere condolences for your loss of Ms. Mary.
    Our Creator God understands how you feel and he deeply cares about you, and He fully understands what you’re going through.. (Psalm 103:14; 1 Peter 5:7) Jehovah is close to those who are Heart broken, he comforts those who are grieving.—Ps. 34:18. You can trust him with your innermost feelings, Pray to Almighty God for peace and he will sustain you.
    My deepest Sympathy.

  • Verdencia and Family, My condolences to the your family in the loss of your mother.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 46:1 says “God is our refuge & strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress.” May God bring you comfort, peace and hope.

  • To Mary’s family and friends, please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. I, myself, have found comfort in reading Job 14:14,15 where it shows that Jehovah God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. The Bible gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29) May this bring you some comfort and strength as well, remembering that soon God will wipe away our tears and swallow up death forever. (Isaiah 25:8)

  • I am so sorry for your loss. I pray that the memories you have with Mary and the wonderful hope God gives of seeing your dear loved one again on a paradise earth will bring you comfort at this time. That beautiful hope can be found in God’s word the Bible at John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:3, 4.
