"My condolences to your family.. No doubt this is a tough time for you and the need for comfort is critical. The best place to find this comfort is God's word, the Bible. (1 Corinthians 15:26.) This scripture means that very soon God is going to put an end to death and we will no longer have to deal with the pain or loss anymore."

"I am sorry to read of the passing of your son, brother, uncle and friend He will be missed. Death is described in God's Word the Bible as being a common "enemy," of mankind as recorded at 1Corinthians 15:26. Sadly this enemy is one we as humans are unable to defeat on our own. Lovingly Our Grand Creator promises to do so as found at Isaiah 25:8. He will accomplish this feat by means of his Kingdom in which we pray for in the Lord's Prayer. Once more I am sorry for your loss."
