We write to express our sincere condolences with you and your family during this your time of grief. We pray you may have strength in the days ahead. May this scripture bring you hope and comfort during this time as it did our family. Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” That’s our loving God’s promise.
We are so sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a loved one isn’t easy. Our loving God invites us at 1 Peter 5:7 ” to throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.” May God give you courage and strength to sustain you in the days ahead. At John 5:28,29 Jesus spoke about a resurrection for our loved ones. These verses helped me to cope with the death of my brother and father may it do the same for you and your family.
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of John. I knew him from Country side Y and always had a good time with him. He was always a lot of fun to be with and I have really missed him since he became ill.
Good thoughts go out to his family.
Glenn and Jan Rose

You certainly have our sympathy and we will miss his smile and gentle spirit.
