To the family, I would like to send my warm Christian Love along with my sincere condolences. Jehovah God (Psalms 83v18 please read) is very much aware of the pain that death brings and considers our Dear Love Ones to have only FALLEN ASLEEP in His memory (John 5v28-29) thus awaiting a BEAUTIFUL FUTURE RESURRECTION Hope!! Were the righteous will possess the earth and live forever on it in PEACE!! (Psalms 37v11,29) A truly encouraging future promise that will soon take place!
