I send your family my condolences. Losing a loved one is a difficult trial. There are priceless moments and cherished memories that are shared. Although this may be a troublesome time, please find comfort that God is aware of your pain. He will not allow you to handle more than you can bear. (2 Chronicles 6:29,30) Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "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". May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.
