I will make him a promise to keep the memories we shared in my heart forever.

  6. I am truly sorry for the pain you are going through right now. We read at Ecclesiastes 9:11 that unexpected events effect us all. As we patiently wait for God to restore to life our loved ones in paradise on earth, may the love of family and friends bring you comfort at this time. (Acts 24:15, Psalms 37:29) May the God of comfort be with you during this difficult time.

  7. I am very sorry for the loss of your loved one. Please know that God is aware of your suffering and he cares about you. ( 2 Corinthians 1 : 3,4 ) . I pray that you are able to find comfort in God’s promise of paradise where there will be no more pain and sorrow (Revelation 21 : 4, 5 ) and the many wonderful memories of your beloved becoming a reality in the future resurrection. (Acts 24 : 15). Please accept my sincere condolences.
