I am sorry for your loss. Continue to let your fond memories of Geraldine warm your hearts. Always remember that God cares for you and is “close to the broken-hearted.” May you call on Him in prayer for comfort and strength during this difficult time. Psalm 34: 18.

My deepest sympathy to the Atkinson family and friends. Death was not a part of God's original purpose for mankind. According to Ecclesiastes 3:11 he "put eteternity" in our hearts. You can be assured that his purpose will be carried out. For he has promised to make all things new, sickness and death will be eliminated and will never come to mind again. Revelation 21:3,4 May these promises prove to be a source of comfort when it's greatly needed.

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Geraldine Atkinson. I feel your pains and sadness but God feels it more , that is why he has promise to remove death forever. May God's promise and words bring you comfort. Revelation 21:4-5.
