Condolence: Austin always left me with a feeling of love that he had for his family. When I read his obituary I thought now he will be with Skip as he always told me about how he had saved her ashes to be with his. May these thoughts that I had, give peace to know you had such good parents. I always enjoyed his visits and his outlook on life.
Condolence: Dear Family, I am very sorry for your loss. Grief can be so hard especially the first year. Losing someone we love so much and is so dear is very difficult. While you can not communicate with them and they can not communicate with you right now because the are asleep in death, this is temporary for God through his son Jesus Christ assured us they would undo death through a resurrection, which means a standing back up—a restoration of life again! But when and where will this take place? Jesus promised at John 5:28 that there will be a resurrection and at John 6:40 he said he will resurrect those asleep in death. Psalms 37:10,11,29 along with Revelation 21:4,5 help us discern this resurrection will be after the world is made new. When true peace and security abounds and death is once and for all eliminated. So we know by this it hasn’t begun yet but be assured it will happen and you can be reunited here in paradise with your dear one! In the mean time John 17:3 invites all to get to know Jehovah God and Jesus Christ so that you may be comforted by these glorious promises! May these bible truths help sustain you as they do me.
