    Our sincerest sympathy to the family and friends at this your time of loss. We wanted to share a thought found at Job 14:14,15 it states, “If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory serviceUntil my relief comes. You will call, and I will answer you.You will long for the work of your hands.” May you have peace and comfort.”

    We wanted to express our sympathy to you and your family this verse encouraging during our time of loss. “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Jesus referred to himself to as “the resurrection and the life” at John 11:25. We pray that in the days to come you will be strengthened.
