I wish to extend my sympathy to the family of Mrs, Florence Brown. I did not know Mrs. Brown, but was touched by her beautiful photo. So much character is expressed in her eyes and gentle smiled. I loved that "She gave worth to all"! I wish that I had known her. Heartfelt sympathy to all her loved ones!

My condolences to the family. May “the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials” sustain you during this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.

My condolences to the Brown families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Florence. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.

Please accept my condolences for the passing of your dear loved one. When someone we love dies, the heartache and grief can be great. I hope that you can be comforted knowing that God cares for you and sees your pain. "He is close to the brokenhearted and He saves those who are crushed in spirit. May you find comfort and relief during this grievous time, as you cherish the precious memories of Florence.
