"Dear White family, I am sorry for your pain, and loss. I would like to share with you something that has given many comfort at a time like this. You can find real comfort in what God has promised, such as in John 5:28,29 -He promises that he is going to resurrect all those who have ever died, back to life again here on earth. And all the things that cause us sorrow, pain, and even death, will be gone forever. You can read about this in Revelation 21:3,4, and 1 Corinthians 15:26."
"Sorry to hear about the passing of your loved one. May the comforting promises from God ease your pain during this difficult time. One of which is found at Isaiah 25:8. There it says "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.”
Again, please accept my sincere condolences for your loss."
"Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Remember all of the good times you shared. What a celebration he is having now. May the Lord wrap his loving arms around you and give you strength during this time."
