  • Please accept our sincere condolences. The bible assures us that our heavenly father is aware of our pain and he is near to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18). It also gives us the promise that there will be a resurrection and that God will bring an end to death once and for all (John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:4). We pray that the power of God’s Word will help to ease your sorrow in the days ahead.
