"I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. The Bible promises that very soon death will be done away with at 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. " I hope the promises of the Bible can bring you comfort during this difficult time."
"Dearest Bernice and family,
Bruce and I are so very sorry for your loss. I have such fond memories of Janice in school, church and social events. I know she will be greatly missed. You will be in our thoughts and prayers."
