Bea, Lorraine and the Valdez family, we are so sorry for your loss. We didn’t know your father but recently learned of his sacrifice in the name of our country during the war. He was a great man and raised a wonderful family. God, family and county, devoted to them all. You are in our prayers.

Loyola lamento mucho tu pérdida. Que las palabras de nuestro amoroso Padre celestial les traiga consuelo y fortaleza durante este tiempo tan difícil. Nuestro creador promete regresar a nuestros seres queridos a la vida en un mundo perfecto donde no habrá más sufrimiento o muerte (Juan 5:28-29 & Apocalipsis 21:4)

My deep deep condolences to the Valdez family: May you reflect on the precious memories that you have made with your loved one. Losing a loved one can cause so so much sadness and pain of heart. So, I would like to share what helped us when our precious daughter died and later when my precious husband fell asleep in death due to cancer. I appreciated the calls and visits from people from all over. But I also, recall just sitting down and reading different Scriptures and meditating on them. It was so comforting to read that God cares for us personally... (1Peter 5:6, 7). Yes, He cares, He sees our pain. And, He Jehovah God will in His due time do away with All sicknesses & death (Isaiah 33:24 & Isaiah 25:8). He is indeed a God of comfort. Oh, wow He promises the hope of seeing our precious loved ones again (John 5:28, 29) and says where (Psalms 37:11). He always keeps His word. I hope that these few Scriptures were of some comfort to you as they were to me.
