I'm so sorry for your family's loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. Please take comfort in the Bible's promise for the future (Acts 24:15) I hope this helps bring some comfort in this time of sorrow.

My condolences to the family of Mrs Dorothy Sedlacek. May you find comfort in knowing your loved one is in God's perfect and limitless memory and in His promise to wipe all tears from every eye (Revelation 21:3,4).

I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and within 30 days I also lost my dear mother-in-law. What helped us during this time period was the comfort from the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 - "The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces." Also at Revelation 21 verse 4 we find God's promise to remove both pain and death. For more comfort, I turn to the website at: (Search: Comfort)
