Online Condolences for Frances Babcock ( February 23, 1929 ~ August 22, 2018)

November 08, 2018
To the Babcock Family, I am so sorry for your loss. May the God who "binds up the brokenhearted" and "comforts all who mourn," strengthen your during this difficult time.-Isaiah 61:1,2 — (, MT)

November 05, 2018
Offering my condolence to the family and friends of Frances Babcock. As you cherish the many fond memories of Mrs. Babcock, reflect on the time when aging..., sickness... & death... will be conditions of the past! (Revelation 21:3,4; 1Corinthians 15: 26) This is what our loving God Jehovah has promised and Jesus Christ himself guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19) May God’s word provide you the comfort to endure now & in the days to come, as we await the fulfillment of his promises! A. Marie Pettiford Casey (formerly of Lake Havasu , AZ)

To the Family , I would like to express how sorry to hear of your loss. The pain of losing a loved one is a pain that seemingly never goes away. However, the pain can lessen when we think of what God has promised to do for us. What comfort does he provide us? First of all, at 1 Cor 15:26 it says: "The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death." So God views death as an enemy and will eventually remove death. Secondly, Jesus gave us hope when at John 11:25 he said: "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:" So there is a chance to see our loved ones again under better conditions. This comfort from the Bible has helped me in dealing with the loss of my father and I hope it will help your family to some degree with your loss. Frederick N (, SC)

Extending my sincere condolences to the Babcock Family. Shared memories of moments spent with you dear loved one, can help to ease the sadness. May the "Father of tender mercies" and the "God of all comfort" sustain you in this time of sorrow.-2 Corinthians 1:3,4 — D Howard (, MD)
