God strengthens us by giving is "the power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Psalm 46:1 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress." Psalm 36:7; "How precious your loyal love is, O God! in the shadow of your wings, the sons of men take refuge." Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 55:22; Isaiah 41:10;13)

We thank the Lord for all the love and joy He put in our lives through Aunt Bobbie. Her departure leaves a big hole in our lives and whets our appetite for heaven, where Jesus will wipe away every tear and fill all who have loved and believed Him with joy forever. Praying that Uncle Bill, her children, grandchildren and great-grand children will have genuine and lasting comfort in the midst of grief and loss.

Please accept my condolences for the passing of Barbara. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15)

I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)
