Condolence Messages

  1. To the Boyd family and friends, you have my condolences in your loss. When Lazarus died, Jesus told his disciples that he was going to awaken him (John 11:11). Jesus knew that death is a deep sleep state in which the dead are awaiting the promised resurrection (Acts 24:15). May you have faith in God’s promise that Jason will live again!
