Condolence Messages

  1. To The Gaines Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss and wish to extend my condolences to the family. Death at any age is our enemy and was never a part of God’s original purpose. He has promised through his word the bible in Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4 to eliminate death along with sickness and pain forever. The resurrection that his son Jesus spoke about in John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 which reads, “All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out,” is soon to take place and will allow us the opportunity to welcome back all of our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death, to awaken on a paradise earth and to enjoy live forever upon it. Psalm 37 verse 29. May these promises from the bible bring you a measure of comfort now and a hope for the future.

  2. My condolences to Chris and fam. Time will heal my bro. Love u
