Condolence & Memory Journal

We would like to express our deepest sympathy for your loss. The loss of someone close is difficult to bear. God promises a time when death will be no more and this is found at Revelation 21:4 which reads: And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. I hope this brings you some comfort.

To the Hill Family: I am a neighbor of yours who heard about the loss in your family and I am truly sorry, I would like to share a scripture found in Gods Word the bible to bring your family much needed comfort. The scripture is found at Revelation 21:3,4 which reads: With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say:"Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Again my sincere condolences.
