We send the family our sincere condolences and thoughts of peace and courage. As you comprehend this profound loss... let yourself cry knowing that each tear is a note of love rising to the God of the heavens (Psalms 83:18). He knows your pain and suffering and will help you cope with your grief. Have faith in God's promise at Acts 24:15 of having the hope of seeing your loved one again. It is comforting for us to know that God does not cause suffering and that one day it will end. James 1:13; Rev. 21:3,4.
