We are so sorry for your loss. Even with a firm hope for the future, death is still accurately described as an enemy in the bible at 1 Corinthians 15:26. We can't help but feel the void when someone we love dies. The Bible holds out a hope for us that I personally have found to be a comfort. I especially love the scripture found at John 5:28,29 that says, " Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear Jesus' voice and come out." Jesus promises that millions now dead will again live on this earth, and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful conditions. It is my sincere hope that these thoughts bring a measure of peace to your minds and hearts, as they have to mine. Once again, please accept my heartfelt greetings and condolences.
