    I’m so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how you must feel. I have found comfort in scriptures like Job 14:14,15 which remind me that God cares so deeply for us that he yearns for the day when he will bring us back to life on earth (Job 14:15). These words fill me with the hope of seeing again the ones that I have lost. I hope that these words bring you comfort as well.

    Please accept our condolence on the loss of your dad. I lost my dad in March so I know the loss you feel. Our dads were part of a strong, steady generation. They were our anchors and their shoes will be hard to fill. We hope that time and great family memories help you and your family through these difficult days and weeks.
