Condolence Messages

  1. my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. May the God of comfort, comfort you during these trying times as we all await the fulfillment of the promise in Revelation 21: 3, 4

  2. May God’s promise at John 5:28,29 of a future resurrection bring you comfort. Until that time comes, he 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)

  3. I’m so sorry Still lost for words

    Please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss of Melissa . It is so hard to loose a family member especially at the young age of 45. Please remember that we are promised by Jesus that we will have an opportunity to be reunited with our loved ones again here on earth. John 5:28+29 gives us such a wonderful hope, please read it for yourself or go to for more information or take advantage of the on line bible study.Please be encouraged by these things as I was when I lost my Dad.
