Condolence From: Brittany
Condolence: Dear Hitchens family, I wanted to send you my deepest sympathies. I am very sorry for your loss. I can sympathize with the hurt and emptiness of heart you are feeling. Death has been an enemy to each of us, taking those we love so dearly. Soon there will be no more pain, illnesses, or death to cause so much grief, for the Bibles' promises are so fulfilling and gives us a beautiful hope for the future. 1 Peter 5:7 assures us that "Almighty God cares for us." So soon He will undo the effects of suffering, sickness, mourning, wickedness, and will "swallow up death forever." (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4)

Condolence: I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. Dorene was a sweet lady that always had a smile on her face when I seen her. She will be missed by her family. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend her services.
