The death of someone you love is one of life’s greatest tragedies but the God who comforts all who mourn help to sustain you during this most difficult time, as you await the fulfillment of Gods promise to be reunited with your loved one again (John 6:40)

I am so deeply sorry to learn about the passing of your loved one James Seamster. I know that this is a difficult time for you but please know that our loving heavenly father Jehovah cares for us deeply. He assures us that the time will come when we will see them again by means of the resurrection. John5:28-29 Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in the promises of God and find inner peace of mind and heart. Please know that others care and share your pain and that you are never alone. The enemy death affects all of us! How good to know that soon all suffering, death and pain will be no more! Rev21:3-4

Sincere condolences to the Seamster family. I never got to meet Mr. Seamster, but I knew James. Jr., he was a very kind person. May the family find comfort in the hope of seeing them both again, as promised at Acts 24:15.
