To the family
I was very sorry to read Thomas Benny Lynn, Jr. passed. May the tender mercy that God has always shown be with you now so you will know that you are not alone and may the prayers of others help in some small way to bring you strength and comfort and courage each day. When we lose someone we love the loss seems too great to bear. However Jesus gave his own perfect life as the basis for removing from mankind the curse of imperfection, sickness and death. A comforting thought that I found in the bible says, Soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away‚?¶Revelation 21:4
I hope it will give the family comfort too my deepest sympathy to the family.
Benji, I was sorry to hear of your father’s passing. My sympathy goes out to you and your family.
