Please accept our condolences on your loss. We received notification of his passing from my sister. Jim and I are first cousins and we attended rival high schools. I’ll always remember him as being slightly mischeious and funny. May God grant him peace and comfort. Jerry & Kyong Edmonds Fairfield CA.

Sorry For Your Loss Jesus Christ Loves Me We Love You

Dear Edmonds family. I am very sorry to have read of the recent death of your loved one, James. Please accept my most sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be very comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and also at Revelation 21:3-5. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about anresurrection of our dear loved ones, as well as do away with all of the many causes we have for suffering, including sickness, pain and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will likewise comfort your family and will also ease some of your pain during this most difficult time in your lives.
