"My condolences go out to the family and friends of Thomas.  From reading about him I know he will be missed and was loved by many.  I can't imagine losing a child or a sibling at such a young age or the hurt you must feel.  No matter what, it can truly be said that death is an enemy and soon it will be brought to nothing (1Cor. 15:26).  I have found much comfort in the Bibles promise of a resurrection hope of our loved ones at John 5:28, 29 and hope you will too.  Death was never a part of Gods original purpose, in fact he yearns to soon bring an end to it and the suffering it causes your family and friends.  Revelation 21:4 states: "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."  I did not know Thomas, but I read his obituary and I hope these scriptures will help to bring some comfort knowing that others care.  If you would like to learn more about the Bibles promises and the hope it brings, please feel free to contact me."

"I am extremely sorry for your loss as I lost my sister on the same day. December 12, 2014.
I would like to share with you a poem I wrote for my sister Judy
During my struggle with a broken heart.  Maybe these words will comfort you as well!!

They say I'm sorry for your loss, they say your heart will mend, they say you're in a better place and death is not the end.
They say you're reunited with loved ones gone before
They say that you'll be waiting at heavens door
I feel their love in every word of comfort they impart and know that each is spoken from the heart.
But all the words of comfort, though kind, sincere and true, can't take away the emptiness we feel without you."

I know that right now your world has turned upside down. May you take comfort in knowing an angel is watching over you. Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow. I pray that in time all of the happy memories come back. My thoughts and prayers are with your family! God rest his soul.
With great love, Sherry"
