Our deepest condolences to the family. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, words alone cannot ease the pain of our loss. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 147:3 reads He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. We can also find comfort from Jesus words at John 5:28-29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.

So very sorry to hear about your loss. My condolence to you and your family. It will be so wonderful when death is no more. Rev.21:3,4. And see our loved ones again on Earth in the future . Acts 24:15 Psalms 37: 11, 29 What a comfort to know that God does not cause death at this time. Ecclesiastes 9:11. Jesus told us to pray, "Thy kingdom come thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven ." This is a government. Soon, it will solve all mankind's problems. No more sickness, pain, death, mourning, there will be no more food shortages. Mathew 6:10; Daniel 2:24; Revelation 21:3,4 Isaiah 26:19. Psalms 37:11,29. Look up all the scriptures, you will see that this is true. I am praying for strength beyond normal for you, and comfort for you and your family. For more comfort from the Bible for free , please.
