    The death of a loved one is hard to bear. Please take comfort in knowing that your heavenly father understands your pain as he too experienced the death of his only son, Jesus Christ. Job 14: 14, 15 shows that God yearns to bring your dear loved one back to life.

    I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. I think of him often and how he looked after me when I was in college. I loved him dearly and will forever cherish his memory.

    Rest in Peace with our Lord and Savior!

    I will always love you!
