To the family of Mr. DeRamus,
May it bring a small comfort to you that others in your community do care. Please read these passages: Job 14,14,15 as well as John 5 :28,29. These passages have brought my family comfort peace and a sense of genuine hope. I pray the same for your family.
Mrs. Thomas

I am truly sorry for your loss. May the true God watch over your family during this most grievous time. Even though the death of a dear loved one is a hard burden to bear, the Bible gives us hope of a time when we will see our dead loved ones again . This promise is found at John 5:28, 29 and Acts 24:15.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. May you find comfort in Jehovah God's promise to swallow up death forever and soon end all our suffering. (Rev. 21:3-5; Isa. 25:8) Peace to you during this difficult time.
