Dear

At this difficult time in your life, I realize that words may seem empty as you are grieving the loss of your son/daughter ________.

However, I believe it is important that you know your friends are praying that God will surround you in His loving arms, and that His peace will be your strength.

The loss of a child to the scourge of cancer has to be the ultimate grief that a Dad or Mom will ever endure.  You are so blessed with the thought that not only do you know Christ as Savior, but _____________ also came to believe in Christ as well.

What a wonderful assurance and hope that one day you will be re-united with __________, and that you will spend all of eternity in adoration of your Savior.

We can still take great comfort in the verse:   Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. [14] We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. – 1 Thes. 4:13-14

Again, we will be praying for you and trust that you will contact me if you need anything at all.

In Christ,

Rev. John Doe

Death of Elderly Saved Parent

The Psalmist David said in: Psalm 27:4 One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.

When I think of your Mom/Dad I think of someone who enjoyed being in the presence of God, and the church was a place that offered great comfort and solace in a world of great challenge and trial. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
