Condolence Messages

  1. To The Bretton Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss and wish to extend my condolences to the family. Death is a real enemy to us all at any age. Even God considers death to be an enemy and he has promised through his word the bible at Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4 to eliminate death along with sickness and pain forever. Soon, the resurrection that Jesus spoke of in John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 which reads, “All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out,” will take place and allow us the opportunity to welcome back our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death, to awaken on a paradise earth and to live forever upon it, Psalms 37 verse 29. What a happy time that will be. May these promises from the bible bring you a measure of comfort now and a real hope of seeing your love one again.
