"May God comfort you at this time.Pat was a wonderful friend when we were members at Butner Baptist Church.She will be greatly missed."
"I am so sorry for your loss. She was a great lady. Know that you and your family will be in our prayers."
"I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. Jehovah God promises that very soon death and all sorrow will be a thing of the past.
Revelation 21:3,4. "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. "
Also, he promises that there will be a resurrection. This real hope of seeing our dead loved ones live again is found at Acts 24:15.
I hope the promises of the Bible can bring you and your family comfort during this difficult time."
