  5. Dear Family,
    I wish to express my deepest sympathy in the loss of your loved one. The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. The Bible’s promises give comfort and hope. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore The former things have passed away.”- Revelation 21:4. I hope this will give your family comfort and hope. If you would like to know more about what the Bible promises, please visit: free of charge or obligation.
    With Deepest Sympathy, Kristy
