Our sincerest condolences to you and your family. We wanted to share a scripture that bought us comfort when we our brother and father both died. It’s found at Revelation chapter 21: 3,4 it reads,”With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 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. The former things have passed away.” Please know that others care and we pray that God may grant you strength in the days ahead.
We’re so sorry to hear about your loss. At Ecclesiastes 9:11,12 , it states,”I have seen something further under the sun,…because time and unexpected events overtake them all. For man does not know his time….when it suddenly overtakes them.” At John 11:25, Jesus said …”I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” May these scriptures give you hope and comfort as they did our family. May God be your strength in the days to come.
We all loved June very much and will miss her.
