My deepest sympathies for your loss, even a long life we’ll doesn’t seem long enough does it. I pray you find comfort in the words at Rev21:3,4 where Jehovah tells us that soon he will “wipe out every tear from our eye and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” Because there is no death in heaven we can be sure this is a promise for us her on earth. We can also look forward to the promise at Acts 24:15 “there is going to be a resurrection.” We will see our loved ones again.

Love, Dionne and Jason

Dear Tim and The Bastian Family,

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. She is now with her beloved husband resting after raising such a large and successful and close family.

My sympathies to you all at this time. What a long and fulfilled life your mother did get to live, which is comforting surely at this time of sorrow.
