To the Family and Friends of Deacon James Hagwood,
We of the Mercy Community Church offer our heartfelt condolences at the passing of your loved one. You have been and shall remain in our prayers. We pray that Almighty God will graciously grant you and your family a new understanding of His unfailing love and comforting presence. May His infinite wisdom, benevolent majesty and gracious mystery grant you peace, as you go through the healing process and provide you everlasting hope in Christ. We pray that even in this time of sorrow, you will see the goodness of God and the abiding comfort of His presence.

Lastly, we pray that you will consider trustworthy the Word of the Lord in 1 Thessalonians 4:13 18 where He tells us:

13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 15 For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
