I wish it were possible to find just the right words, but there are no words that can really provide comfort. Time gave you many moments of joy together and time will eventually help you heal. I hope that peace will find you soon and only happy memories will fill your heart. We send our sympathy and will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.
