    To The Sledge Family Death is never easy and my condolences go out to the entire family. May you take comfort in knowing that Tequilia is only asleep in death and that soon Jesus will awaken her (John 11;11-14) And not only that (Isaiah 25;8) Says God will swallow up death forever; I hope this brings you peace.

    Please accept my condolences during this time of distress. While it is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Tequilia, it saddens God more. In the days ahead, you will reflect on seemingly small, yet precious memories. This is only natural, especially when we experience the loss of someone loved. However, take confidence in knowing that just as you have memories, almighty God remembers too. The difference is, God can and will restore perfect life to those in His memory as expressed in the faith strengthening video ** vimeo.com/200537152

    To the Sledge family, I am so sorry for your loss. Death is unnatural and very difficult for us to deal with. Looking to the Bible always bring comfort. At 2 Corinthians 1:3 it tells us God is "the God of all comfort, who comforts in all our trials..." so we can see that God is going to comfort us no matter the situation. May you allow God to comfort you during difficult times.

    To The Family, I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a loved one is a difficult time for the entire family. It is my wish that you can find comfort in God's Word the Bible. The Bible says at Ezekiel 18:32 " ' I do not take pleasure in the death of anyone', declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ’So turn back and live.'” In this verse the Bible is assuring all mankind that the True God is not the cause of death and that it is something he dislikes. I hope that you can find some relief and solace in this verse and other scriptures during this challenging time.

    Dear Sledge family, I send you my sincere sympathies for the loss of your dear loved one Tequilia. Losing someone we love in death is a difficult event to endure. God's Word has provided a comforting hope for the future, for our loved ones whom we have loss in death. John 5:28,29 says, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones. This reunion will take place in a beautiful Paradise on earth, where we'll be able to fully experience the words "death will be no more." (Revelation 21:4;Psalm 37:11,29)
