That is was worth the trials, to live here eternally!

    As you grieve the loss of your love one, it is my hope that you are able to draw comfort and strength from God's word. Grieving the loss of someone who is very dear to you will no doubt take time. But as each day passes, reflecting on the memories you shared and meditating on those promises found in the bible, will give you a hope and the strength to keep going. Philippians 4:6,7

    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
