Dear Posey Family, I am speechless. This loss is beyond words. Please know I am here for you morning, noon, and night. I can't imagine the pain you are feeling and if there was a way to take it away, I would. I would truly do anything to take it away. I am just so sorry. I love you.

May God take care of you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss. May "the God of all comfort" (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God's Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.

Ellis Ray, My prayers are with you and your family at this time. Remember our Lord has comfort for you and your family. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NLT) 3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. Be blessed of the Lord. Alexander G. Bell Jr.
