My deepest sympathy, I know you were a wonderful family man and loved your father. I am so sorry for his passing and I know he is in a better place. I enjoyed working with you for many years at Delphi. I pray for peace of God which passes all understanding. In Jesus name.

Family & Friends of Ben Eramo,
May you find comfort in knowing death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed. His word is clear, “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces”. (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4)
Further, Jesus guaranteed the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), he performed resurrections and was himself resurrected by his Father. All resurrections took place on earth, giving us a glimpse of what is to come.... seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15)
Until his promises are fulfilled, may Jehovah God continue to bless & comfort you in the days ahead....
