Condolence: So very sorry to hear of Rita's passing. She was a wonderful person. I worked with her for many years at Tanner and she was always a pleasure to work with and talk to. I know how much she loved her family! May God grant you peace during this time of loss.

Condolence: May you have comfort in the memories of your loved one. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4) The
Bible gives a real hope of being reunited again with your loved one. It promises that
your loved one will soon come back to life in the resurrection to a peaceful paradise
on the earth. (Acts 24:15)

Sincerely,

S. Ellis

Condolence From: Sarah Taylor
Condolence: My condolences to the Vess family. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Rita. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
