"So very sorry to learn of the loss of your beloved John. I hope that during this difficult time you can find strength and comfort in the promises of our Creator, Jehovah God. His inspired word assures us there will be a resurrection (John 5:28, 29) Soon mankind will have the opportunity to live forever on a paradise earth. (Ps. 37:29) May Jehovah conceal you in the shadow of his wings until the troubles pass. (Ps. 57:1)"
"I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. May Jehovah, the God of all comfort, help your family during this difficult time.
2 Corinthians 1: 3-4 "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.""
"Very sorry to hear of Mr. Blackwell's passing. He fought a good fight. It's very frustrating for us as doctors when there's only so much you can do against cancer sometimes. I'll miss him as a patient. We had some good talks. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I am glad Mr. Blackwell is at rest and in no more pain."
Have a suggestion for us?
