    Message: I want to offer my condolences to the family and friends at this time. Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things to overcome. The God of the Bible Jehovah does not want anyone to experience the pain, sorrow and mourning your family is going through. That is why one day he will do away with death, and families will be reunited. Rev 21:3 4. Prayers of support, comfort and endurance are being said for the entire family.
