I want to expres my deepest sympathy to your family as well as friends at this difficult period in your life.
Please note that God's Word, the Bible gives us a wonderful hope for the future.
As time goes on please reflect on Rev.21:3,4

I am so sorry for your loss, but please keep in mind that the bible says there will be a resurrection. Acts 24 :15. Do you long to experience the joy of having a dead love one come to life again? God's word the bible gives us that wonderful hope namely, the prospect of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. Luke 23 : 43. The bible calls Jehovah God the creator of life and the source of life. Acts 17 : 24, 25. Therefore, the One who gave life to all living creatures is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died. And in the future death will be no more. Revelations 21 : 3, 4. I hope this spiritual message will give you some comfort in your time of sadness. Please visit
