  10. To the Ross Family, Please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss of your Son, Brother, Uncle Grandson. It is so hard to loose a family member especially at the young age of 28. Please remember that we are promised by Jesus that we will have an opportunity to see our loved ones again here on earth. John 5:28+29 gives us such a wonderful hope, please read it for yourself and be encouraged as I was when I lost my Dad.

  11. Berry family, I’m so sorry for your pain. I pray our God of all comfort surround you all at this time. Anna Smith (Aaron and Jared mom)

  12. I want to express my sincere sympathy to the family for your loss, and to share some comfort and hope from God’s word. Soon he will take away all causes for sadness and mourning- we will look around and see that these things are no longer here. (John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:4; Psalm 37:9,10, 29)
    Until that time comes, Jehovah God assures us at Psalm 34:18 that he “is close to the brokenhearted” and “He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” So he strongly desires to give you the strength you need to cope during this most difficult time. (Philippians 4:13)

  13. My deepest condolences. May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief, and throwing your anxiety on God in prayer, because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 83:18) All suffering and death will soon be eliminated and we have the hope of being reunited with our loved ones who have died. (Revelation 21:3,4; John 5:28,29; Isaiah 26:19)
