Not sure what to say?

No heart breaks alone for God is always near. When a prayer is whispered God is always there to hear. When sorrow's overwhelming, He comforts tenderly. A single tear never falls that he does not see; “Moreover, may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm in every good deed and word.” 2 Thessalonians 2: 16, 17

And no resident will say: “I am sick…”Isa 33:24. We can be sure of this reality because God has promised as seen from his divine words about the near future; perhaps you or I may see those missing from our lives due to sickness or tragic injury that lead to death. Prayers go out to the surviving family and friends.

My condolences to the families. What a terrible accident.

May God hold each family in his hands.

I was sadden to read about this tragic accident. God's word promises that he will not forget those in his memory. (Hebrews 6:10).

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the families at this most difficult time. Please be assured that God will bring you comfort and help you cope with the heavy weight of your loss. “Blessed be Almighty God who daily carries the load for us.” Psalm 68:19

May God bless you and may he let you go inside his kingdom.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. May our loving God bring peace and love to you. Donna from Baltimore
