  35. My deepest condolences to the family. May God’s future promises at John 5:28,29 of an earthly resurrection and Revelation 21:3,4 of no more suffering or death bring you comfort. Until that time comes, God assures us at Psalm 34:18 that he “is close to the brokenhearted” and “saves those who are crushed in spirit.” So he understands your pain and grief and is eager to help you by giving you the strength you need to cope during this most difficult time. (Philippians 4:13)

    Please accept my deepest sympathy, love and prayers during this most difficult time. May God lift each and every one of you up and fold you into His precious arms providing peace and comfort.
