    Expressions of sympathy for the death of your loved one. Death’s pains are hard, heavy and sad days are ahead…( Job 10:1). At the end of a tunnel there is always light. That light is from our creator. Isaiah 25:8, points to the removal of death forever. Revelation 21:3-4 says.. “No more death”. Psalm 37: 9-11 gives us a different hope, notice righteous mankind including those who have died will live on a restored and peaceful earth. So behold a bright and beautiful light at the end of the tunnel!
