I pray that your family, friends, and colleagues will find hope and comfort from these verses from the Holy Scriptures:

"Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends." [John 15:13 ESV]

"And he [the Lord Jesus Christ] said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” [Luke 23:43 ESV]
