Our sincere sympathy to my dear Aunt Blanche's family. I will remember her as an independent, self-sufficient lady, who treasured her children, grandchildren and great-grand children. She was easy to talk with about almost anything.

We wanted to share our condolences with Blanche’s family. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3, 4. Our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. We hope you find comfort in those promises.

I’m very sorry for the loss of your loved one. Losing a loved one is heartbreaking often times leaving tears to speak the pain. Please know that others care and that God heals the broken-hearted, Psalm 147:3. May Christ heartwarming promise comfort you, John 5:28,29

I was sorry to read about the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection to come according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in scriptures like [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations 21:3-5] which says in part that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, because God will swallow up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort. My Sincere Condolences.
