Private Condolence

Please accept my deepest condolences to your family. I would like to offer encouragement to your family for the loss of your loved one. The Bible offers immense comfort and many wonderful promises from God foretelling an end to our enemy death. The scriptures at Isaiah 25:8 says, “He will swallow up death forever…”. Also at Revelation 21:4 it says, “And He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please read these verses in your Bible and feel free to find additional comforting scriptures at

My deepest condolence to the family. I am very sorry for your loss. Take comfort in knowing that John is save in God’s memory. John has the hope of a resurrection. John 5:28-29, “The hour is coming when all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out. He has the hope of living again under much better conditions.

Pop liked to take care of us. I’ll always cherish our early mornings where he’d make me coffee. Love you Pop.
