    I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in God’s word the Bible. At 1 Corinthians 15:26 And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” Our God has made loving provisions to remove suffering and death from us forever. Our love ones will live again. Read John 6:40.
    May the hope and promises in this Scripture bring you comfort and strength to endure the difficult days ahead.

    To Dawon, Yvonne, and Simone.
    Losing someone is never easy especially at such a young age. And although we know that no words can ease the loss you feel, just know that God holds the power of Life over death and He is the true salvation. This is our only hope and comfort in this temporary life. We are truly sorry for your loss. At times like these you have to leave on your faith and try to accept that God has a bigger purpose for us. May all the love that surrounds you give you strength. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and the family during this time.

  7. I hope that da Smith family make it threw theez hard times due to a senseless situation !!#godwillhelpmakeitthrew!!

  8. I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to the Smith family. There is such a sense of helplessness when someone we love dies. I’d like to share some scriptural thoughts that really helps me. Prayer is so valuable at this time. It’s not that prayer simply makes us feel better but it also helps in another way. This is brought out in the Bible at 2 Corinthians 4:7 where it says that God can give us, “… power beyond what is normal,” to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. The reason we recover is because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, “… all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out “. Jesus was referring to the resurrection. This is our amazing hope that helps us recover and gives us power to go on. 2 Corinthians 1:3 describes our Creator as, “… the God of all comfort “. One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort (Psalms 83:18) be your comfort now during this time of sorrow.
