Condolences for Lawrence Hinds

From: Nancy Young
To the family of Lawrence a. Hinds. My family sends their deepest sympathy to you. Our thoughts and prayers goes out to you. Acts 24 verse 15.

From: Linda
My sincere condolences for the loss of your Husband. I know that losing a mate can be a difficult time in life. What has helped me is the wonderful hope given in the Bible at Jo 5:28,29 where God will remember our loved ones and will bring them back to life on earth. Ps 37:11,29.
Imagine the day when there are no more tears of sorrow and death and pain are gone forever. rev 21:3,4. May you too find comfort in these promises.
