My sincere condolences to the family at this time of loss. Even Jesus wept at the loss of a loved loved one. Please draw comfort from the scriptural promises at Acts 24:15 and Rev 21:3, 4 knowing that God cannot lie (Isaiah 46:10, 11).

Dear Holmes Family
Please accept my sincere condolences for the recent loss of your beloved one. The loss of a love one is never easy; but we can find comfort in the Bible at ( Acts 24:15 John 5:28,29 Psalms 37:10,11,29 ). May these Bible base scriptures Bring comfort to the family during this time of grief.

My condolences to the family and all who loved John. The seeming finality of death, coupled with the fact that he was so young, is what makes it especially difficult. But we can have confidence that God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. (Job 14:14,15) His Word, the Bible, gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29) May this bring you some comfort during this very difficult time.В
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I want to offer my condolences to the Holmes family and friends. Our Almighty Heavenly Father knows the pain you feel from the loss of your love one. He did not purpose his human family to die but to live and enjoy life forever. This is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever along with all pain and suffering__ 1 Corinthians 15:26; Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” Notice his promise to awaken all those in the memorial tombs from asleep in death¬__ Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will live ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." What a delight it will be to see them again! Allow these words to keep comforting all of you.
