While words fail to capture the "pain" of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words fail to capture the "joy" of having our Heavenly Father return your dear one to you (John 5: 28 & 29.

Dear Colman family, I am so sorry for your loss. May the Good of all comfort grant you peace at this time. 2 Corinthians1:3&4.

Willie, Loganville, Ga

I'm so sorry for your loss. Death is not something that was intended to be experienced by humans. The bible holds out a beautiful promise of a ressurection at John 5:28,29. We can see our loved ones again very soon. I hope this scripture brings you some comfort as it has done for me in the past when I experienced loss. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject and so much more.

To lose someone dear to us is never easy, especially a wife or mom. May you find comfort in the God who cares for you and of tender mercies to help bear this burden as well as family and friends. Please accept my condolences. I encourage you to look to the time when death is to be brought to nothing as well as sickness, outcry, pain and death because the former things have passed away. (1 Corinthians 15:26; Rev. 21:3,4). Jesus gives reassuring comfort that the dead will come out of those memorial tombs back to a resurrection of life. I encourage you to read John 5:28-30. This way we all will be reunited with our beloved loved ones. Let's look forward to this time!

I am blessed to have known "Miss Kay" through Hospice of Savannah. She was a sweet lady that had a bright smile. It was my pleasure to set with her and read the Bible and pray together. May she rest in the arms of her Savior. To the Family, may the Holy Spirit bring you His comfort.
