To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

My heart was caught when I saw you lost your son William and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose such a beautiful child, a part of you, can bring such overwhelming grief and our words may not help but Jesus assures us at John 5:28,29 that you will have your son in your arms once again without the pain we see today. Until God’s promises come true may every good thought, every memory of the love you felt, flood and overtake you with calm and peace to help you through the dark moments. Please go to for more encouraging scriptures and videos to help heal your broken heart 💔 Sue
