Condolence From: Ted Harry
Condolence: I’m sorry for your loss. This is one of life’s greatest challenges that we have to face. In the Bible Jesus said, did and promised something that gives us comfort and hope.
At John 11:11-14 Jesus compared death to sleep. This assures us that our loved ones are not suffering or in pain .
Then Jesus did something amazing, John 11:43-44 tells us.
We can only imagine how those that were present must have felt!
Jesus promised us something similar at John 5:28-29. What a beautiful hope and future we have.
If you would like more details please download a free copy of the brochure “Good News From God” then read lesson six along with the Bible.

Condolence: Again to you Melita, and the entire family of Ernest Johnson, we send our condolence and heartfelt sympathies to you on the passing of Ernest. He was always a gentleman who appeared to be full of wisdom, Godly contemplation and wisdom. And know, he's with the Lord God. Absent from the Body, the spirit is present with the Lord, IICorinthians 5:6. Now, may the Holy Spirit comfort you during this time of sorrow and His steadfast promises of eternal life give you peace, that passes all understanding. And fear not for the Lord God is with you Melita, He will continue to strengthen you. Isaiah 41:10

Condolence: The pain my heart feels is sometimes unbearable. My Uncle E was the BEST man a NIECE could ever have. A true example of a Husband, mentor, role model, educator, coach, brother, familial support, Father, Family man and a gentle giant. I LOVE YOU. I will sorely MISS YOU. I will do all I can to make sure I do all that’s in my power to be by Aunt Melita’s side. I know you wanted her to be fine. There will forever be a part of her that is weakened but the legacy you have left us commands that we remain strong. You made me proud throughout your life. I pray I will make you proud as well...... I love You Aunt Melita and will never stop praying for you and the family....
