I write to offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends on the passing of your love one. When unforeseen occurrences befall us and the enemy death strikes our grief can be great. It also may seem unfair that sickness, which can cause death, has the power to take away someone that we love Yes, it is at times like this that we need comfort and support whether we are acquainted or not. I have found the Bible to be very comforting in this regard. At Revelation 21: 3, 4, our Heavenly Father has promised in the near future that “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Our Heavenly Father has also promised that there will be a resurrection: “and I have hope toward God, which hope these [men] themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous..." What a grand reunion that will be! You and I have the prospects of seeing our love ones again under the best condition possible, a beautiful Paradise earth; God’s original purpose for mankind. All of God's promises will come true, for it is impossible for Our Heavenly Father Jehovah to lie. I pray that these scriptures provide comfort to all of you. Once again, you have my sincere condolences -John 5:28 & 29, Psalms 37:29, Luke 23:43, Hebrews 6:18.
