Dear family,
Please accept my condolences regarding the passing of your loved one. The pain that results from the death of a loved one can be intense and unbearable. However, I want you to know that our Heavenly Father, Jehovah, understands your sorrow and that I certainly have heartfelt empathy for you and yours. Right now, I know your spirits are low because of this difficult time. However, take heart! In God’s Word, the Bible (Acts 24:15), He assures us that ALL of our loved ones, who are now sleeping in death, will be resurrected in the future. God’s Word NEVER FAILS! This is wonderful NEWS…news of which I hope will lessen some of the grief that you are feeling right now.

Matt and family. I will be remembering you and the rest of the family in my prayers. I bet Vickie was glad to see him when he arrived in heaven.

Allen was one of the sweetest people I have ever known and such a blessing to all who knew him. He loved to show me pictures of his grandchildren so I knew they were so precious to him. He is now with his sweet Vicki and his Lord.

Saddened to hear about Allen. When I attended Pinecrest, He was always at Sunday School every Sunday.
Pray for His Family during this time. Rest assured, Allen is at peace and with our Lord.
I will miss Him.

I extend my heartfelt sympathy to Mr. Peters' family. I know he will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. You can find great comfort in the hope for the future present in the bible. At Isaiah 25: 8, the Bible promises a time when God “will swallow up death forever.” Also, Acts 24:15 boldly states, "there is going to be a resurrection." The resurrection this verse talks about will give us the opportunity to see our lost loved ones again on Earth. I know it will be a joyous time when you can reunite with Allen!
