    You have our sincere condolences, on the loss of your loved one. We're cognizant of the fact that words alone can't take away the pain, but know that you're in our thoughts and prayers. He will truly be remembered in the hearts of everyone that knew him. May God provide the entire family with strength, and comfort. "But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words." - I Thessalonians 4: 13-18

    We're so sorry to hear you lost a dear loved one. It is very comforting to read the Bible in these difficult moments. I personally like Psalms 9:9 which reads: “Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). Jehovah our God also has made the provision of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55:11). Close your eyes and imagine yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? Find out more about this resurrection online at

    I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my condolences. When we are grieving the loss of a loved one, we can find comfort from the scriptures. I found a couple scriptures at Psalm 55:22 promises that God will sustain us if we just throw our burdens on him. So we need to remember to pray. I look forward to seeing him in the resurrection when he will again be enjoying friends/family. (John 5:28,29). I hope these scriptures bring you as much comfort as they bring me.
