Condolence From: R Bailey
Condolence: May I offer my sincere condolences. I pray your hearts find comfort in God’s Word the Bible where it states: “. . . the Sovereign Lord provides escape from death” Psalm 68:20. This will be at a time when there will be peace, with no sickness or death as the Bible promises at Isaiah 33:24 and Revelation 21:4. Until then, I pray your hearts find comfort and hope in God’s Word, family, friends and good memories. My deepest sympathy.
