    Sorry for your loss.
    Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

    Dear Byars family,
    Pleas accept my condolence and deep regrets for your loss and I’d like to share where I found comfort and hope at such a time as this when this enemy death took my entire family. I found comfort and hope in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 where it states that we’ll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and at Isaiah25:8 we’re told that this enemy death will be swallowed up forever. With these scriptures and others I’m able to cope with my loss and get through each day because now I know I’ll see my love ones again and so can you. I wanted to share this with you now when hope and comfort is needed hoping that this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you’ll feel free to let me know if I accomplished my purpose. I hope to hear from you. Sincerely, GM
