My sincere condolences on the loss of your dear loved one. May it comfort you to know that our Loving Creator promises to bring back to life those in his memory to perfect health on a paradise "earth" (Acts 24:15, Revelation 21:4).

To Ruth's family:
Deepest sympathy on your loss. Mom and I first met Ruth years ago when my dad was John's barber, and we've kept in touch over the years. She was a classy lady, and we always enjoyed our conversations with her. In addition to her visiting with Mom, I often met her at Big Y on shopping day and will really miss seeing her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Be consoled by the fact that she's reunited with your dad.

Please accept my condolences for the passing of Ruth. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15)

I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)
