8 Condolences for Joyce L. Poczynek

  • I would like to send my deepest and heartfelt condolences to the family of Joyce Poczynek. I understand that this is a difficult time for the family, but I would like to leave them with some words of comfort. These comforting words are found at John 5; 28, 29. It says “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life,..”. Here we see that God promises that one day very soon, he will reunite us back with those dear love ones we have loss. But until that time know that God understand your loss and is here to provide the entire family with comfort. ( 2 Coronthians 1: 3, 4.)
