Our deepest condolences to the family for your loss. I know all too well the heartache of losing someone as special as a mother and best friend. I just wanted to share with you all what helped me to endure the darkest moment of my life. Reflecting on God’s promise at Acts 24:15 and John 5:28,29 brought me inner peace and strength. Those verses promise an earthly resurrection where we will be reunited with our family and friends who have died. I hold on to that promise with all my heart as I long for the day I will see my dear mother again. I hope it can bring your family a measure of comfort as well.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your recent loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. I have always received comfort from the Bibles’ word at Philippians 4:7 which reads “and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus”. I hope you can receive comfort from these words as well. Margo Simmons
