Private Condolence

My deepest sympathies to the Higley family. I know that your family is experiencing the loss of a dear loved one, so I can't imagine what you must be going through. Rest assured that Almighty God, Jehovah is a loving God, and is certainly interested in how you're feeling. In His Word, the Bible, he promises to raise up our dear loved ones through the beautiful hope of a resurrection. (Acts 24:15) May "the God of comfort" give you the strength to get through the days ahead. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4)

Dear Higley Family, I am so sorry for your loss. When we lose a love one in death it is never easy. During this difficult time may your family find comfort in Gods word the Bible that soon we will see our love ones again. -John 5:28,29
