Linda To the Family. Losing a love one in death is a trying time for all. I just want to give the family some comfort and hope from God's word, which gives the assurance that one day we will see our dear love ones again. ACTS 24:15 And I have a hope toward God, which hope these(men) themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteuos and the unrighteous. Certainly while we await for these wonderful promise, I hope the family truly find comfort knowing this wonderful hope from Gods word.

The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Although this is a very sad time for the family, the Bible does provide us with much comfort. We would like to share something we have found personally to be comforting. The Bible At Revelation 21:3, 4 and Isaiah 25:8 states that God will do away with all causes we have for suffering, as well as sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted us and it is our hope that these thoughts will comfort you and your family as well.

Anna L Marcano Dear Sims Family, my deepest condolences to you. It is never easy to lose a loved one in death. 1 Corinthians 15:26 states that death is an enemy, but we have assurance with God will bring death to nothing. May you find joy in remembering the good of your loved one. And may the words found in Revelation 21:4 bring you comfort. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
