The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Words cannot console when we have loss someone we love in death. Although this is a very sad time for the family, the Bible does provide the finest basis for comfort. Death is an enemy that will be done away with, according to 1 Corinthians 15:26 and Revelation 21:3, 4. Knowing this has always comforted us, and it is our hope that these thoughts will comfort you and your family as well.

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. You can find more comfort from Gods word @

Dell My condolences to the family: When one losses a loved one we ask, "Will they live again"? The Bible writer Job asked the same question please read, Job 14:14-15. This scripture assures us that God is eager to resurrect your loved one who are now sleeping in the grave. Notice another scripture, 1 Corinthians 15:26 shows that God views death is an enemy. May this be of comfort to you at this time of your loss.
