Memories Timeline


  1. My most sincere condolences for your loss. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 says: "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us". Seek God for the much needed comfort by reading his word. Not only will you receive comfort, but at the same time, you will be reminded of his promises for a better future. In John 5:28,29, Jesus said: "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". Our dead loved ones are going to be resurrected and we'll get to see them again, just as Jesus mentioned. Imagine when that day becomes a reality and you can see your loved one again. It's something we can all look forward to.
