    Dear Bridges Family: Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from the ones we love so much. The Bible assures us that God sees our pain and sorrow and has promised that soon “death will be no more.”(Revelation 21:4) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our dear loved ones to life again.(John 5:28,29) Until then, I hope the memories of John and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.
