Condolence Messages

  1. To The Hopkins’s Family,

    I am sorry to hear of your loss and want to extend my condolences to the family. Death is an enemy of us all and death was never God’s original purpose for us and he has promised to eliminate death forever in Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4. Soon, the very words that Jesus spoke regarding the resurrection in John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 which reads in part, “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 and to spend forever with them on a paradise earth, Psalms chapter 37 verse 29. What a happy time that will be. May these scriptures bring you a measure of comfort and a real hope of seeing your loved one again soon.
    Warmest Regards,

Leave Your Condolence
