Condolence: My condolences to the Bendt and Simon families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Twila. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...they will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.

Condolence: My condolences go out to your family for your loss. As this is a sad time, I hope you can find comfort in the promise from our Heavenly Father found in the Bible at Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3&4. May this bring you comfort.
