    To family and friends please accept my sincere condolences. God's promise to Abraham was that through his seed people of all nations will be blessed. (Gen. 22:18). One of these blessings is the hope of a resurrection as demonstrated by Abraham and Isaac. I am very sorry for your loss but at the same time, I know that one day your loved one will be among the happy throngs who benefit from this promised blessing. Again, please accept my sincere condolences.

    To the Singleton Family. Words of comfort from a dear friend, flowers and a glimpse in the past can bring comfort when your heart is heavy and void. Without a doubt, the primary source of consolation is our compassionate Heavenly Father, Jehovah God. He is the foremost example of empathy. He is the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort who delivers us through all our trails and he will give your family His loving embrace to get you through the days ahead. (Read 2 Corinthians 1:3-4) I attended school with James and you described him perfectly. I know you will miss him dearly as a father, grandfather and son. God knows the pain in your heart because he never made us to treasure such a precious gift and loose it in its prime. He offers us a solution, His son Jesus Christ. While on earth he comforted a widow who's heart was heavy with the loss of her only close relative, her son. She never uttered a word but Jesus felt her pain and did something to relieve it. He stopped the funeral session and told her to stop weeping and then he did something unexpected, he resurrected her son back to life. He then gave her son to her. Can you imagine that happening to you. It will. For at John 5:28-29 Jesus said, do not marvel at this because the day will come when those in the memorial tombs will hear my voice and come out." It can and will happen, for you have his word and out is written in God's Holy Word. So, for now he will help your family carry your load for his promises that he will give you the strength beyond what is normal to endure this heavy load you are now carrying. (2 Corinthians 4:7) When the your visitors leave for the night turn the light on by your favorite chair and read the comforting scriptures quoted above and experience the comfort and embrace from God's Word the Bible. May these words bring comfort to your family.

    As we mourn your loss, one thought comes to mind; God has resurrected humans in the past. The bible reports eight instances of humans-young, old, male and female- who were brought back to life on earth. Some had been dead for a short while, but one had been in a tomb for four days!- John 11:39-44. For more about the resurrection promise, please visit our website

    We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "And he (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". God strengthens us by giving us "the power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
