  1. Dear Tanner family, you have my deepest sympathy during this time. The loss of a loved one can cause great pain and sorrow but you can get through this with Gods help. He gives us hope in his word the Bible.
    2 Corinthians 1:3,4 says “The God of all comfort, comforts us in all our trials” so God can comfort you through these trying times. Acts 24:15 says “There is going to be a resurrection” so you will see your dear loved one again. I hope this was a source of comfort for the family.
