“So sorry for the loss of Buddy. We've gotten to know him the past few years as he lived down the hall from my grandparents. Was always so wonderful and nice. My kids loved seeing him at grandma and grandpas. He really was a big part of my grandparents lives, visiting, checking in. He very much had a heart full of love to give. A few months back my grandpa had to go to the emergency room and Buddy went right down to sit with grandma because he knew she was upset. So condolences and prayers to your family as you go through this time of loss. ”

“My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. Losing someone you love is truly difficult and I know Buddy will be missed. Please know our Heavenly Father holds out promises that can help us with our sorrow. One such promise is that death soon will be done away with forever (Revelation 21:4) and another promise is that "there is going to be a resurrection." (Acts 24:15) I pray these promises from God, who cannot lie, (Titus 1:2) bring you comfort. ”
