    Please accept my deepest sympathy for your family's loss. I know you must be grief-stricken at the death of your young son, Marcus. He had so many years ahead-so much to live for. The Bible has proven to be the best source of encouragement for such a difficult time. At 1 Corinthians 15:25, 26 the Bible shows that the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. So, untimely death will not claim a young child like your beloved, Marcus. The Bible at John 5:28, 29 shows that God ‘yearns’ to reunite Marcus with you by means of the resurrection, and lovingly has made provision to do so. I sincerely hope that these scriptures from the Bible will bring your family much comfort and hope, as you continue to treasure your memories of your beloved son, Marcus.
