Condolence: The Bible calls God the “God of all, who comforts us in all our trials.” (2 Cor. 2:3) When we lose our loved ones to death, God provides the comfort we need. Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, For Jehovah himself has spoken it.” God promises to turn our tears of pain into tears of joy. He will do so by destroying death, and restoring to life those who have died. (John 5:28,29) May this hope comfort your grieving hearts.
Condolence: Brian and Erin,
I will be unable to attend your Mom's funeral since I will be in Gatlinburg. My sympathy and prayers are with you at this sad time. She loved you very much and those precious grandchildren.
