Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Benton family,
I am sorry to hear of the recent death of your dear loved one. I send the family my heartfelt condolences.
The death of a loved one is never easy to accept or get over. We long to see them again, hear their voice, feel their touch.
We may even feel as King David did when his son Absalom died.(2 Samuel 18:33)
The Bible makes it clear that God did not originally intend for humans to die. We die because of the sin of our first parents, Adam and Eve.
God has lovingly promised to give us back what Adam and Eve lost.(John 3:16) He has also promised to reunite families together again by means of a resurrection.(John 5:28,29)
So during this very difficult time, gain the stength that only God can give us, by going to him in prayer and throwing all your burdens upon him and he promises that he will sustain you.(2 Corinthians 4:7)(Psalms 55:22)
