I would like to send my condolences to the family of Mr Deriso. I know losing someone you love in death is very sad but we can all take comfort in the scriptures at Revelation (21:3,4)where it tell us that soon God will do away with all things that causes pain and suffering even death. I am so sorry for your loss

To The Deriso Family
Please except my sincere condolences for the loss of such a loving young man. Life is precious gift from the God the giver of life. Cherish it; because life is like a mist that appears today and how quickly it disappears. Ecclesiastes 12:1 says “ Remember your Grand Creator in the days of your youth,” how true;  life can be short. Find comfort in prayers,words,family and friends that surround you in this difficult time. One day we all look forward to the promise at 1 Corinthians 15:26  that says “ the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.”
