Dear family, I express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear loved one and I know it’s so difficult to bear. But know that your Heavenly Father understands your pain and He cares. He extends a hope to each and everyone and that hope is that you will see your loved one again. John 5:28, 29; Isaiah 25:8a
