    My deepest condolences to the family for your loss. Our Heavenly Father gives us a comforting thought when He tells us that soon death will be "swallowed up forever." (1 Cor. 15:54) Along with this, God also promises that ones who have died will be able to live again. (John 5:28,29) I hope these encouraging scriptures can bring you some comfort during this difficult time.

    Dear Young family, please accept my deepest sympathies. I am very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death can leave us with feelings of sorrow and grief. But there is a beautiful hope we can look forward to. Isaiah 25:8 says, "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." So not only will Almighty God eliminate death, but he will remove the feelings of sadness that come from losing someone we love, and replace those feelings with comfort and hope.

    I'm sorry for your lost of Irma. I know she was deeply loved by family and friends.

    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.

    To The Family, You have suffered a great loss and Jehovah feels your pain and for that I am truly sorry . Psalms 145: 18,19 says " Jehovah is near to all those calling on him,... " Verse 19 says " He hears their cry for help and he rescues them." Almighty God will help you through your pain as he has helped me with my losses. Please rely on his tender care.

    To the Young Family I would like t o take this time to express my condolences to the entire family. We are sorry to hear about the passing of Irma young. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. May all draw comfort from this promise where God tells us that He would soon restore our love ones back to life. (Acts 24:15) This text from God serves as a personal guarantee from Him that you will see Irma being reunited back with her family and friends. Why not use this time to reflect on all nine accounts in the bible that speaks about the future resurrection blessing. There are nine such account. Here is just one recorded at Acts 9:36-42. Remember that God has given us His personal promise. God does not lie. ( Titus 1:2)

    My condolences to the family It is sad to lose a loved one in death, it only brings grief and God understands that and he is going to eliminate it forever. Revelation 21:4. Jesus promised the resurrection of our loved ones at John 5:28,29 . I hope you will find some comfort.
