Death is a sting we all must bear. But, our comfort comes from knowing that God feels for us and he will give us the comfort we need. Because he is the God of all comfort and tender mercies. And he will give us the strength and courage that is needed to endure during this most difficult time. Please accept our sincere condolences.
