Pam, Terry and Family,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
— Ken and Penny Taylor
I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the family. I know what it is like to lose a loved one in death and very little can ease the pain. My family and I however, have found comfort in understanding the truth about death and the prospect of seeing our dead loved ones again. In the bible, Jehovah God promises to resurrect those who have died, to live again on earth. Yes, according to Isaiah 26:19, "your dead ones will live again. They will awake and cry out joyfully." Additionally, at Psalm 37:10,11 & 29 it states that the righteous ones will live on earth forever in peace, after God has removed all wickedness. Finally, there will NEVER be anymore pain or death. (Revelation 21:4) What a joy it will be to reunite with our dead loved ones with no worries of ever losing them again. I hope this prospect comforts your hearts in this sad time.

My prayers are truly with you and I hope these beautiful scriptures are able to bring some warmth to your hearts as they have been able to bring to mine.

Most sincerely,
— Carmen
Dear Ernie and family,
Not sure if you remember us but we spent a lot of time together when our children were young and you lived out on Graham Rd. May God bless you.
