    Dear Murray Family: Please accept my sincere condolence for your loss. The Bible can bring you much hope and comfort at a time like this, because Jehovah God promises that soon He will end death, sickness and sorrow forever(Revelation 21:3,4) and by means of His son, Christ Jesus, He will bring back to life "all those in the memorial tombs" (John 5:28,29). May you find the strength to hold and meditate on these beautiful promises from Jehovah God; along with beautiful memories of your beloved one.
