    We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "And (God) will wipe out 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 accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

    Dear Family, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. My sincere condolences to you. May you think of the many beautiful memories that you shared with Ella, and cherish those precious moments. May the God of all comfort caress your heart with his living promise to one day reunite you together again in the future paradise mentioned at Revelation 21: 4,5. Our Dear Heavenly Father Jehovah (Psalms 83:18 )knows the many tears you cry and he will sustain you if you let him. I was thinking of you and hoping that you can find comfort during this difficult time.
