    Condolences to your family. May you receive comfort from the word of God during this time of loss. Acts 24:15 says there will be a resurrection of the righteous and unrighteous. Can you imagine the joy of Martha and Mary when Jesus raised Lazarus back to life?—Read John 11:21-24, 38-44. Revelation 21:3,4 promises that one day death, mourning, and outcry will be no more. To find out more regarding the hope for the dead visit and search "death".

    Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your loved one. May God almighty, father of tender mercies continue to comfort you all (2 Corinthians 1:3 & 4). How so eagerly we all await the fulfillment of God's promise to completely remove death, tears, mourning, outcry and pain (Revelation 21:4). It is also comforting to know about the resurrection hope for our dead loved ones. May these comforting thoughts strengthen you all. You can find more comforting thoughts at
