|I write to offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends on the passing of your love one. When unforeseen occurrences befall us and the enemy death strikes our grief can be great. It also may seem unfair that sickness, which can cause death, has the power to take away someone that we love Yes, it is at times like this that we need comfort and support whether we are acquainted or not. I have found the Bible to be very comforting in this regard. At Revelation 21: 3, 4, our Heavenly Father has promised in the near future that “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Our Heavenly Father has also promised that there will be a resurrection: “and I have hope toward God, which hope these [men] themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous..." What a grand reunion that will be! You and I have the prospects of seeing our love ones again under the best condition possible, a beautiful Paradise earth; God’s original purpose for mankind. All of God's promises will come true, for it is impossible for Our Heavenly Father Jehovah to lie. I pray that these scriptures provide comfort to all of you. Once again, you have my sincere condolences -John 5:28 & 29, Psalms 37:29, Luke 23:43, Hebrews 6:18. |
|I am very sorry for your lose. I hope you will feel better. Your in my prayers.... sincerly, courtney |
|To J.J Barrera, We are terribly sorry to hear aout this loss but we all can remember on the last week of school when J.J had a cardboard disk and shared with everyone on the ground. J.J was almost always nice to everyone at school and always had a good attitude towards school. He was always smiling and making us laugh. We will miss him a lot. J.J will be remembered forever in our thoughts and prayers. In band, he always was playing the percussion instruments. His creativity made everyone laugh and made many smiles in the room. Even our teacher liked his humor. J.J got along with almost everyone and always had a good time. Try not to think of what happened, think of all the good memories we had with him. He was a good person and we will always remember him. Signed, Kaden Pierson, Casey Fassiotto, and Kelby Fassiotto |
|JJ i will never forget you and your crazy ways at school! We would pass eachother in the hall and you would say "fine dont give me a hug!" You were such a good friend and for that I will for sure never foget you JJ. And in band when Mr. Ludwig was showing me how to play the pattern in the song you would learn it too and you would hum it and you knew what to do to make me laugh as hard as i could! JJ no matter what I'll always be your best friend. Remember in 4th grade we promised that we would always be friends until the end of the road for one of us. Well you chose to go before me. JJ Me and my mom will miss you and the way you made us laugh. I love you JJ and may you rest in peace! Watch over your friends and family. I LOVE YOU JJ AND WILL MISS YOU SO MUCH! Your Friend Forever, Lucero "Lucy" Sanchez-Madrid |
|JJ,I can remeber you smiling everytime I saw you rather if it was at a store, in the hallways at school or in a classroom. You never hesitated to stop and say hi and aks how was I doing and you would always ask for Lucero. You were such a nice young man and I will never forget you. I know that the Lord will accept you into heaven with his arms wide open. You were truley a gift from God. Keep on smiling in heaven! Jennifer and Angel, I am truly so sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine how you might feel. We have lost such a great young man and he will never be forgotten. May God bless you all. You are all in our prayers during this difficult time. Gloria Gamboa and Family.|
