We are saddened to learn of Arline's passing. We served on the AAL branch at Our Savior's together for many years. Arline was a thoughtful caring individual with a heart as big as I have ever seen. She will be missed. We pray that God will grant you comfort during this time. She loved her family and friends and I know God had a special place ready for her in heaven.

with deepest sympathy,

Please accept our sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. This is one of the most difficult things we must face in our life. May it comfort you to know that others are deeply touched by your loss. God assures us at Psalms 34:18 that he is near to those broken in heart and those crushed in spirit he saves. Jesus also promises that we will be able to see our loved ones again. Jesus own words found at John 5:28,29 tells us there will be a resurrection. What a wonderful hope! God says that soon on the earth there will be no more pain, suffering and especially death at Revelation 21:3-5 We anxiously await the day when we will no longer lose those we love. May these bible thoughts bring you comfort at this most difficult time.

My deepest sympathy to the family for the loss of your dearly beloved one, may your hearts find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ love us –Romans 5:8; Psalms 83:18. Jesus Christ promises that one day soon, we will be reunited with our dear loved ones again here on earth and the disease of aging will be reversed –Job 33:25; John 5:28, 29; Psalms 37:11 and death will be no more –Revelation 21:3, 4.

I will miss her, sorry for your loss. I used to live at Russell Lampson with her. She was very sweet. God rest her soul.
