"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."
"I am so sorry to hear of Gary's passing. May the Lord be with you during this difficult time. My prayers are with you and your family. Hugs to your family."
"I am so sad to hear of Gary's passing! He was such a kind and generous person! His smile and great personality will be sadly missed. He was such a good friend to me at Biogen and have always missed him around here! My deepest sympathy is with his family whom he loved more than anything!!! May God be with him and his buddy Dick McCallum forever............."
