  2. I’m so sorry for your recent loss. My deepest condolences to your family. Death of a loved one is never easy to endure, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Continue looking to God and you will always find comfort in him (2 Cor 1:3,4). He will soon destroy the enemy of death (1 Cor 15:26), and He will soon return our loved ones to us through the resurrection (John 5:28,29). Please visit and search “When Someone You Love Dies”, it helped me through some difficult times and I hope you can find comfort in it also.

  3. My deepest sympathies to the Gibson family. May the God of comfort be with you during this difficult time (Psalms 147:3)
