I did not know your loved one, but I am so sorry for your loss. The majority of us are not strangers to loss. Many who have experienced loss find these practical suggestions helpful. Allow yourself time to grieve, talk about your thoughts and feelings, accept help, draw closer to God, visualize the resurrection. Doing these things has given many people, myself included, the strength to go on. My sincere condolences at this difficult time.

Dear Linda, Kim, Brian, Bill, Amanda & the rest of the family:
So sorry for the loss of Bob. I knew Bob for many years living down the street from Aunt Ellie all those years. Always seen a smile on his face & used to deliver papers to there house when I was younger. I remember Bob & Linda sold me a air hockey table I had so much fun with it when I was younger. Even though Bob is going from this world in body he’ll always live in your hearts & memories. And he’s with our Heavenly Father.
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
May God be with your whole family in your time of need.
God bless. Brian Latham

My deepest condolences to the family. The loss of a loved one is very painful. Even Jesus wept when Lazarus died. Yet we have the hope of a resurrection as Paul mentioned in Acts 24:15. This gives us something to look forward to. A time when our loved ones will live again. When pain and suffering will be no more. Until that time, may you find comfort in the “Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials.” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). May he comfort you through caring friends, warm memories, and7 moments of peace.
