    Please accept my heartfelt condolences. We look forward to the time when sickness and death will be things of the past and to seeing our dead loved ones restored to life here on earth under much better conditions. (Isaiah 33:24; Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:3-4) Until that time may your memories, prayer, and the loving support from your family and friends help you through this very difficult time.
