Condolence Messages

  1. To the family and friends of Goldean, you have my deepest sympathy in your loss. It is truly a blessing to live a long life of 84 years! Psalm 90:10 says, “The span of our life is 70 years, Or 80 if one is especially strong.” That is a long life but not compared to future blessings of life! By means of God’s Kingdom, he promises that we will live forever, in the near future (Psalm 37:29)

  2. A prayer for your family asking God to bless you with courage to bear the sorrow you feel. 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 .
