My wife and I are so sorry to read about your loss. Although we have lost loved ones in death, we cannot begin to imagine what your family is going through. We wanted to share with you, scriptural thoughts that continue to bring us comfort. For instance Acts 24:15 says “And have hope toward God,… that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust” (King James Version). And once our loved ones are resurrected we have the hope of never again being separated by death since Revelation 21:3,4 says that ‘God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more.’ We pray you find the Biblical promise of the resurrection hope comforting. It is our privilege to share Good News from the Bible with our neighbors. Please feel free to get in touch with us via our email address Again, we are so sorry for your loss.
