Dear Fitzsimmons family, may God give you strength, as we look forward to the day when our loved ones will awaken in the resurrection (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15). What a joyous day that will be!

To the family and friends of David Fitzsimmons,
I am sorry for your unexpected loss.
May you find comfort in the Bible’s hope that one day we will see our lost loved ones again.
Jesus showed how this promise is sure when he resurrected Lazarus. John 11:1-44.
Such bible truths provide us with hope and comfort as we look forward to the day when death will no longer be and those who have already succumbed to this enemy will be awakened onto a Paradisiac Earth, to a life free of sickness, pain, sorrow and the worries of ever dying again.
This being the Creator’s original purpose, it will indeed be fulfilled.
Even though this wonderful Promise from the One who can and will fulfill it doesn’t take away our pain and grief of death,
my wish is that this will bring you all a measure of comfort as it has for me when I lost my dad.
Genesis 2:7, 8, 15; Isaiah 55:10, 11; Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:3, 4;
John 6:40 and 1Corinthians 15:25, 26 🙏🏼
