Though I know this is a difficult time for the family, my hope is that you will be comforted from God's inspired word the Bible. John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:3,4 gives hope of a future resurrection and the complete elimination of death, pain and mourning. May the sure promise of a resurrection, comfort and strengthen you in the days ahead, knowing that the One who promised, "cannot lie" (Titus 1:2) Please accept my deepest condolences.
