    I look forward to meeting this beautiful soul in paradise after she’s resurrected. For the time being it’s comforting knowing that she’s ‘asleep’ in death & is no longer suffering on this side of earth.
    Sending my condolences to the entire family. Keep smiling, knowing these critical times are temporary

    To the Family of Ms. Hill, I am sorry your dear loved one fell asleep in death. My sincere condolences to all of you. Although words cannot fill the emptiness of your loss, may you find a measure of comfort in knowing that soon, Our Creator, promises in His Word the Bible, that He will remove all causes of suffering, pain, sorrow, and even death forever! (Isaiah 14:24) Until then, may you be comforted by this promise as you gain the strength and inner peace to cope with the difficult days ahead. May I assure you, I am not trying to give or change your religion. The pain of loss is felt, regardless of religion. Again, my sincere condolences.
