    I share in your sorrow of the passing of Cousin Emma. May you find comfort in knowing that the Almighty God plucked her from his temporary garden of life and placed her in his garden of eternal life because over there she lives in land where she will never grow old nor get sick, suffer and die.

    To the family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. During this sad time, please take comfort from the Bible's positive message. In it, our Heavenly Father assures us of his loving support in times of grief, and he promises to put an end to tears and death (Psalm 34:18 and Revelation 21:3,4). In the days to come, may these words provide a measure of comfort to your family. For more comforting thoughts, please visit Take care.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your love one. May you find comfort from the God of all comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:2,3 . John 11:23-25 tell of the hope Martha had when Lazarus died. She had faith in the resurrection, we can also have the same hope . Acts 24:15.
