    My sincere condolences to the family I am sorry for your loss of your dear love one. However, the Bible offers us a real hope for the future in Revelation 21:4 which states "He will wipe out every tear from there eyes and death will be know more". How wonderful that will be, not seeing our love ones passing away in death. Also Acts 24:15 which says" there is going to be a resurrections of the righteous and unrighteous. This is truly a wonderful blessing to look forward too. I hope that in reading this scripture you and your family find comfort

    To the family of Mr. Baskett: I want to send my deepest sympathy to your family during this difficulty time. When someone we love pass, sometimes we cannot find the right words to say. But I learned that going to Gods Word the Bible can help in that regard. Please reflect on the way that Jesus handled death when his friend Lazarus died. He gave away to tears. Please read the 11th chapter of John concerning this, but he resurrected Lazarus. Jesus promised that he will resurrected our loved ones at John 5: 28 & 29. We can see Kendell again right here on the earth but under different conditions ( Psalms 37: 9, 10, 11 & 29). I hope these Scriptures help to comfort you until the fulfillment of them. Love,
