    To the family of Horace Leon Taylor . I am sorry to read about the loss of your loved one. The pain is tremendous even with the passage of time. There are scriptures in the Bible to help provide relief of grief and distress. Please read Ps 65:2 that reads "The Hearer of prayers a source of comfort in times of grief and distress.

    I would like to express condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] which says that Jehovah God will swallow up death forever. [Revelations 21:3-5] says in part that God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort. With Deep Sympathy.
