  6. Sending our deepest sympathies to the Holmes family. May you find comfort from the scriptures. Our Heavenly Father will be with you and give you the comfort you need. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Our family is from Harmony and when we lose someone from our community we lose a family member. We look forward to the time when Gods promises such as those found at Isaiah 33:24 and Revelations 21:3-5 will be fulfilled, when sickness and death will be no more. Take courage and be comforted in the words of our Saviour Jesus Christ at John 2:28,29 when he said there will be a resurrection. Our prayers are with you the family.
