To the Family ,
I would like to express how sorry to hear of your loss. I recently lost my father. The pain of losing a loved one is a pain that seemingly never goes away. However, the pain can lessen when we think of what God has promised to do for us.
At 2 Cor 1:3,4 the Bible states: "Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God."
What comfort does he provide us? First of all, at 1 Cor 15:26 it says: "The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death." So God views death as an enemy and will eventually remove death.
Secondly, Jesus gave us hope when at John 11:25 he said: "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:" So there is a chance to see our loved ones again under better conditions.
This comfort from the Bible has helped me in dealing with the loss of my father and I hope it will help your family to some degree with your loss.

Clyde is a personal friend and and fellow Church member. Both he and Jean were personal friends of both my wife, Dot and me and both she and i cherished their friendship. The Mission trips we made together were made more enjoyable by Clyde's humor and his Guitar playing. I miss Clyde very much and wish God's blessing of peace and comfort to Jean and the family during this time of grief and sadness.

Dear Pam & Family, I am so sorry about your loss of Mr. Clyde. It is so hard to lose a family member, no matter, how long you have had them in your life. But, with God's love & support, He will ease the pain & you will remember the good times you shared with him. I will always remember him as a kind man, who raised his children to be kind and caring, too. A wonderful legacy!
