Condolence Messages


  2. Dear Harden family,

    It pains my heart to read about your loss. Although not personally knowing Mr. Harden or your family, I send my condolences for your loss. During difficult periods in my life I have found the Bible’s promises to be of great strength and support. Isaiah 26:19 mentions that “Your dead ones will live. . . . They will rise up.” And the Bible at Psalms 37:29 also says: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” You can have confidence in the resurrection (Acts 24:15).
