Add Your Own

Donna Ridgeway

Dear Sheila and family, I am keeping you all in my prayers. All your precious memories will be with you forever, so cherish and celebrate them together. I found great comfort in God's Word when my parents passed away to Heaven. Verses of comfort were Psalm 116:5 "Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful." Psalm 116:15 "Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints."
Love and prayers. Donna R.

I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Mom. Death hurts the love ones left behind. But what joy we will have during the resurrection when we see our love ones again. Isn't that a wonderful hope to look forward to? May Jehovah comfort you at this time.


Dear Marshall Family,
I am writing to extend my condolences. Mere words cannot convey the feelings of disbelief and sorrow that result from losing someone you dearly love. Please do not dismay, for God has a purpose for those who are sleeping in death.
In the book of John 5:28, 29 Jesus says, All in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. Yes, your dear loved one will live again, so don’t think of your loss as permanent. Also, Ecclesiastes 9:5 says that, the dead are conscious of nothing at all. How comforting to know that our dear loved ones are not suffering!
It is my sincere hope that you get a great measure of comfort from the Holy Scriptures.
