I am so sorry for your loss. Words cannot explain the pain a family goes through when a loved one dies and it is during these times when one seeks to their family and friends for comfort. Someone that extends their comfort to us during time like these is God. He asks us to throw our load on him so that we can endure through trying times. Not only that but God gives us a beautiful promise that He will soon fulfill. It is written in Johns 5:28,29 " Do not marvel at this for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life." I hope you can find comfort in this promise, once again I am so sorry for your loss.

We were so sorry to hear of Aunt Delia's passing. We have some fond memories of Delia. Daddy loved all of you so very much. I am so happy I got to spend time with you all. We will be in thought and prayer for you at this time.

I’m so sorry for loss. I wanted to share a promise that can bring us hope. This promise is found at Revelation 21:4-“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.”
