Dear Rita, was so sorry to hear of Michael’s passing. Been thinking of him all day. He always had a story to tell, and always a smile and a hug to give. He will surely be missed. Plan to be there for the rosary and funeral mass. Thinking of you, Dearest Rita.

Our family send condolences for the loss of your precious loved one. I can't takeaway your pain, but please know Jehovah God does care. "Jehovah hates death; he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again".​-Job 14:14, 15.
Our prayers are with your family.

Dear Rita:
Please accept my condolences for your loss. I will miss sitting near Michael at church and hearing al of Michael’s wonderful stories. You and Michael were such comfort to me when my wife passed. I would like to think they are still watching over us.

My condolences to the family of Michael. We can always rely on the God of all comfort to help us endure any trials or obstacles, especially the painful loss of a dear loved one. (2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4). Our loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah, has given us the wonderful assurance that we can and will see our loved ones again by means of a resurrection to an earth transformed into a beautiful paradise.
