Condolence Messages

  1. Dear family we are sorry to hear about your loss death is difficult for family and friends however the Bible holds out hope for our deceased love ones found in the Bible book of John chapter 5 and verses 28 and 29. Why not read these scriptures in your personal personal copy of the Bible.

    Peacefully Yours

  2. To the Family, I am praying for you all. I love you and may God continue to bless you and give you peace.

  3. To the family of Joshua, I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Death is truly difficult for parents especially when at 20 years old, their child had their whole life ahead of them. Romans 6:7 says, “For the one who has died has been acquitted from his sin.” How is that? Verse 23 of that same chapter says, “For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord.” May you find comfort in God’s promises at this difficult time.

  4. Hey aunt Rachel love y’all

  5. Love y’all
