Dear Family, I send my sincere condolences for your loss. There are comforting promises in the Bible that the time is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus] voice and come out. (John 5:28,29) Our Loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah God has also promised that he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more (Revelation 21:4) May it comfort you and strengthen you to reflect on Gods promises to bring back to life your dear loved one to a beautified earth where he can be reunited with his family, and never have to get sick and die, ever again. (Psalm 37:11,29; Isaiah 33:24)

Please accept our sincere sympathy in the loss of De-De. We shared some good years working at First Naitonal Bank. She was a wonderful, beautiful person. May God grant you comfort and peace as you recall the wonderful memories of the years spent. I feel remorse at not being able to share my condolences in person.
