Condolence Messages

  1. To the family and friends of Sharon, you have my condolences in your loss. Death is one of the most difficult situations families must face. It hurts so much when the family circle has been broken but be assured that it is only temporary! By means of God’s Kingdom, He promises at Revelation 21:4, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.

  2. You have my condolences. I knew Sharon from high school and considered her my friend. She was very pleasant and a sweet person. May God bless all her family members in this hurtful time. Rest in Peace Sharon.
