    I send my deepest condolences for you and your family. Having lost someone is a difficult moment of life. May God provide you the strength you need to cope with this difficult situation. At Acts 24:15 and John 5:28, 29 the Bible promises a future hope of seeing our loved ones again very soon. Psalm 37 :9-11 and 29 brings out where we will be able to be with them again!To learn more visit My deepest sympathies 🌺
