Dear family,

My family and I are so sorry for your loss. While words fail to truly express the pain, know that our prayers and thoughts are there to encourage you. All humans feel the sting of death but the Bible gives comfort that God promises at 1 Corinthians 15:26 “And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing”. This is something that has brought me and my family solace when we've lost loved ones and we hope it encourages. Take peace and comfort. For comfort from the Bible, please visit
