"To the Diggs Family,
I am sorry for your loss, I would like to share with you some comforting words from the bible that have given many true comfort at a time like this. Jesus promised that he will resurrect all those who have died, back to life again here on the earth. (John 5:28,29)  And soon all the things that cause us sorrow, pain, and even death, will be gone forever. (Revelation 21:3,4. So take comfort knowing that your love one is in God's memory waiting for that wonderful time to take place."
