    It is a painful thing to lose a precious love one in death. Our loving Heavenly Father did not purpose his human family to grow old and die but purposed us to live and enjoy life. It is still his purpose__ He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever__1 Corinthians 15:26 “the last enemy, Death, is to be brought to nothing.”Notice His promise to awaken our love ones in the memorial tombs from asleep in death__Hosea 13:14 “From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them.” I hope these words give all of you comfort.

    To the family I am sorry for your loss. I know this is a hard time so I wanted to share a comforting scripture with you. Acts 24:15 talks about a time when you will be able to see your dead loved ones again. This is a hope we receive from god. During this time of grief you can turn to him for help. I am sorry again.
