  8. Dear family of Mr. Dempsey: Please accept my sincere condolences and deepest sympathy on the loss of you’re dear loved one. Death is such a tragedy for all of us,, and when it touches us personally, it’s sometimes difficult to find the comfort that we search for. Our loving Heavenly Father Jehovah, who is the God of all comfort, feels empathy for those who have felt the sting of death, and therefore promises to swallow up death forever and eliminate all pain and suffering. (Please read Revelation 21:4 and Isaiah 25:8) Jesus gave even more reason for hope at John 5:28,29 where he explains: “…all those in the memorial tombs…will come out…” As you read the above texts in you’re Bible, may they give you hope and comfort during this most difficult time. Again, my deepest sympathy. David Cowles
