Lisa To the family I offer my sincerest condolences. Here are two comforting thoughts from the Bible that I hope will bring your family some comfort. John 5:28, 29 tells us the resurrection hope is real and Revelation 21:3, 4 assures us of God’s promise that death will be done away with in the near future of mankind. For more comfort please go to

Joyce & Stacy Howard My mother & I would like to express our sincerest condolences to your family. We're certainly familiar with the pain of losing a loved one in death. It's very encouraging that the Bible can offer soothing comforting words at such a time as this. When you've time, please consider reading Isaiah 25:8, 1Corinthians 15:26 & Revelations 21:3, 4 and know these promises are true because God cannot lie. (Titus 1:2) We also invite you to visit (See Bible Teachings) for more comforting yet insightful information that offers a positive hope for the very near future. May God strengthen and comfort you during this difficult time. Our most heartfelt prayers and regards, Joyce & Stacy Howard.
