    While the loss of your love one may be extremely hard to bear, please know that your dear love one is not forgotten, the God of tender mercy and comfort will remember and bring your love one back. – 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. It is his promise that you will see your love one again. Job 14:13-15; John 5:28, 29. I express my deepest sympathy for your loss.
