In every culture, grieving families appreciate receiving comfort. The Creator of life also gives comfort to such mourning ones. The Christian apostle Paul stated in the Bible, that God who comforts us in all our trials, so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial. (2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4) True, divine help does not eliminate the pain but it can make it easier to bear. The Bible teaches that all those in the memorial tombs will be resurrected. Please read John 5:28, 29 in your Bible for comfort and hope.

Dear Family, please accept my sincere condolences for your devastating loss. God knows the pain that you have and the many tears that you cry. May he soothe your aching hearts with his loving promise to reunite you together again in the future Paradise when he will bring an end to sickness, pain and even death. (Revelation 21:4, 5) You're in my prayers. (Acts 24:15)
