    Dear Diane and family… I am so very sorry for your loss of Ryan.

    Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).

    Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences…. John

    To the Family
    You have my deepest sympathy for your loss. May God provide you with comfort during this grievous time. Be assured that one day soon God will do away with death forever. 1 Corinthians 15:26.

  • Guest: Robbie Stewart

    May the promise found at Isaiah 25:8 bring some comfort in the death of Ryan Michael Hughes. “He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces.” Just imagine, no more pain and grief due to the death of a love one! By means of the Kingdom that Jesus Christ taught us to pray for at Matthew 6:9,10; God is going to remove sickness, old age and death from the human family. God’s original purpose for the earth being a paradise will be realized.
