Condolence Messages

  1. With warm thoughts and deep sympathy.
    May your memories console you and may
    God sustain you, with his precious promise of
    someday soon reuniting us with our love ones. Hosea 13:14

  2. To the Johnson family, I am so sorry for your loss. Words can not express the pain we feel when the family bond is broken by death! However, the Bible tells us at Romans 6:7, “For the one who has died has been acquitted from his sin.” May your faith in God’s promises for the future help you through this difficult period.

  4. My sincere condolences to the family,
    May the peace that comes from the memories of love shared comfort you now and in the days ahead and May the words of comfort found in Gods word help to sooth you during your time of grief. Isaiah 25:8
