To the Nicholson family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you find comfort in knowing that God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including pain and death (Revelation 21:3,4). May these promises from God's word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

So sorry to hear of your loss. May the scriptures found in God's word at Acts 24:15 and John 5:28,29 bring hope and comfort in the assured promise of the resurrection.
