Condolence Messages

  1. To the family of Octoria, you have my condolences in your loss. Death is truly difficult for parents, especially when 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.”
