  1. We're so sorry for your loss. Death is truly an enemy but the Bible gives us hope at Acts 24:15 we read Paul's word ," And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." Our Lord Jesus also offered the same comforting promise at. John 5:28,29 May God comfort you in this your time of sorrow. Your neighbor and friend, Maddy

  2. so very sorry for your lost. Words cannot express the unwanted void death brings when we lose a family member or close friend. I fine great comfort from the scriptures, because it tells us that death was not part of God's original purpose. Our loving father Jehovah God has also taken steps to bring back to reality his original purpose and he has guaranteed it by sending his son Jesus to die for all of us. Our King Jesus Christ by means of his precious blood has provided a ransom that releases us so that we can have a relationship with God with the prospect of everlasting life. As Acts 24:15 says,"there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous." May you fine strength and peace. Your friend and neighbor. SH
