Sorry for the loss of your dear love one. May you find comfort in God’s promise when no resident will say:”I am sick”. (Isaiah 33:24) This wonderful promise will take place by means of God’s Kingdom. (Matthew 6: 9&10)

Dear family, may God the Father of tender mercies (Psalm 83:18) surround and comfort all of you during this difficult time and may you find comfort in the promise of a resurrection in Acts 24:15.
