With heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your loved one. The Bible indicates that soon death will be no more (Rev. 21:4) and those who have died can live again. These are promises from God, who cannot lie (Titus 1:2). Please take comfort in this wonderful hope as you look forward to its grand fulfillment.

I met Gram in 2009 when I began dating her grandson Donny. She has an energy you rarely find in someone. She took me in as if I was her own grand daughter. I will never forget the way she loved us. Her love for her family was undeniable. Our hearts will forever ache as we miss her, but knowing shes an angel watching over us all will surely comfort me along the way. We love you and miss you very much Gram.

Charles and family, We were not able to visit and spend as much time together as we would have loved to, because meeting her and knowing her was a memory we will always cherish. I felt as if we knew her forever. She was a joyous, vivacious and loving women. She brought laughter wherever she was. The parties were her greatest gift to her family and friends. She made us all feel loved like one of her own. She brought joy to Charles that I have never seen before in all the years Ive known him. Roy could never remember her name (common fault of his) so he called her Sally. She loved it and always responded to him! I dont think she would have answered him to her own name. This is one of the many reasons we loved her. Until we meet again Sally. God speed.

My dear wife and I would like to extend our condolences for the loss of your loved one. We send this condolence with the sure hope the Bible provides all of us at difficult times like this. As recorded in the Bible, God's only-begotten son, Jesus promises that one day he is personally going to bring back to life all those who have died (John 5:28, 29; 11:43, 44). As death is an enemy to us, it is also an enemy to Almighty God (1 Corinthians 15:26). For that reason, as well as others, He promises to remove from this earth FOREVER all the pain, suffering, wickedness, and DEATH that mankind has had to endure for thousands of years (Revelation 21:3-5; Psalm 37:10, 11, 29). What a glorious day that will surely be! It's a reality and a sure hope that we can trust in because it is absolutely impossible for God to lie (Titus 1:2). My wife and I sincerely encourage you to look up and meditate on these noted scriptures in your own Bible (1 Timothy 4:15, 16; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17). You will surely be encouraged and comforted by the marvelous hope our Grand Creator has in store for us (John 17:3). Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
