    Dear Thomas Family

    I am one of your neighbors here in the local area and I read about your recent loss, and although you do not know us, we wanted to share our sympathy’s with you. I to have lost loved ones in death, so my heart goes out to you in this difficult time. I wanted to take a moment to share with you some scriptural text that has helped me to deal with the grief and pain of death. Please look these scriptures up in your own copy of the Bible, and I am confident that you will find comfort in God’s word.

    It’s important to focus on the hope that Jesus himself described in John 5:28, 29 and Paul’s confidence in Acts 24:15 where it speaks of the resurrection of all those in the memorial tombs.

    We are so sorry for your loss. I was stunned when the call came. We were already planning to come down tomorrow and at the top of our list was to see Uncle Ernest. We tried to come every year and always visited a couple times during our stay. His face would always light up when he got visits. He was one of the kindest most loving people I ever knew and I am SO Proud to have had him in my life. I can’t wait to see him again along with Mom and Dad and all the family. We love you and will see you tomorrow.
    Love Don & Pat Thomas & family
