Condolence Booklet

   Posted Thu September 22, 2016
Dearest family and friends of Christine,

Condolences goes out to you all regarding your beloved.

Death is never easy because it's unnatural. I have found comfort in reading the holy writings found at Acts 24:15 and 1John 4:7&8 stating that God is love, who would never want us to be sad. I hope that you all can also find comfort in reading these holy writings as I have.

Additional information can be found at by searching on the word "death" in the search box.

Thank you for your time, and may all your days be full of comfort.
kind regards
