  1. Dear family, My wife and I are very sorry for your tremendous loss and would like to express our condolences to the family. We cannot imagine the great pain and sorrow you are experiencing during this most difficult time. When we lose someone we love we are left with a strong desire to see that person again. It’s wonderful to know God has promised that those who have fallen asleep in death will live again. John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 gives this wonderful reassurance: .Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.. What a marvelous hope! Once again we wish to express our condolences for your loss. And although we cannot erase the pain you are feeling, it is our hope that this can give you a small measure of comfort.
