To the family and friends my sincere condolences to you all for the loss of your dear love one. Losing a love one in death is very painful. The Bible offers a wonderful hope for our love ones who have died. The scriptures found at John 5:28,29 and Isaiah 26:19 promise that our love one who has died can live again right here on Earth! (Psalms 37:10,11,29). May Jehovah the God of all comfort and tender mercies sustain you at this difficult time (2 Corinthians 1:3,4).
