    My deepest sympathy goes out to this family. The loss of a loved one is a terrible experience. It is an experience that God never intended for us to have. But there is hope ahead for all of us. Soon we will be reunited with our loved ones.

    There is going to be a grand reunion very soon.

    Jesus' made this promise at (John 5:28-29) “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out,” Just think about it, no more sickness, old age, or death.

    “God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”—Revelation 21:3, 4.
