    Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss. As you reflect on good memories take comfort in God’s promise to end all death and suffering. He also promises that we will be with our loved ones again here on earth enjoying the blessings of God’s new Kingdom. Revelation 21:4 “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..” John 11:25 ” Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life”
