    I send my deepest condolences to the family at this most difficult time. May you be comforted by the promise of the resurrection, and the end to sickness and death forever. God makes these wonderful promises to us at Isaiah 25:8 and Rev 21:3-4. May you find comfort in these wonderful promises from Jehovah God.

    I am sorry to read of the passing of your love one. The Bible says that death is and enemy. Almighty God Jehovah offers hope by means of the resurrection. John 11:25,26 Jesus said: " I am the resurrection and the life." Anyone who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life; and everyone who is living and exercises faith in me will never die at all." Do you believe this? Jesus knows the pain that death brings. He has the desire and the power to resurrect those sleeping in death. May your family receive the comfort the your need from the God of all comfort .

    My condolences to the Murrell Family for the loss of your love one. Please find comfort in what is stated in this Bible verse " Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. May our Loving God and Father give you strength to endure.
