  1. I want to give my deepest condolences for your loss. Losing a loved one is the hardest situation anyone can face, but the bible gives us hope for those we lose in death. Acts 24:15, those who have died can be resurrected to live again. My favorite scripture is Revelation 21:4, mentions that soon God will do away with death, and it will be no more. I hope that you take comfort in these scriptures, and turn to Jehovah God for comfort during this difficult time.

  2. My condolences to the Swink family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  3. We are so very sorry to hear about the loss of our sweet neighbor. Fred was a dear man and we had so much fun talking with him at our neighborhood picnic and ice cream social. He always said hello when we walked our dog, and we have very much missed seeing him sitting on the front porch as we pass by your home. Please know we send our sincere sympathy to you and your family, our prayers for comfort and strength, and our love and friendship.
