    Please accept my condolences for the loss of Charles. God's word promises there will come a time on earth when there will be no pain, suffering, or death (Revelation 21:3,4). May these promises provide comfort in this time of sadness.

    My sincere condolences for your loss. May you be comforted by the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, Jehovah, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. May the hope of the resurrection and God's promise that sickness and death will cease forever prove to be a comfort to you during your time of sorrow, See Rev 21:4, Isa 33:24, Acts 24:15 and
