Condolence Messages

  1. My sincere condolences to the entire Digs family.

  2. To: The Diggs Family.
    I am sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in God’s word the Bible. At John 11:25 Jesus said to her: (Martha) ” I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life;
    And they will have the privilege to live on “a new earth that we are awaiting accord to his (Jehovah God’s) promise, in these righteousness is to dwell.”-2 Peter 3:13.
    May the hope and promises in these Scripture bring you comfort and strength to endure the difficult days ahead.
