    To the Starks Family In behalf of my family, I would like to take this time to express my condolences to the entire Starks family. Yes we are truly sadden to hear about the passing of Jesse Lee Starks. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. As the days continue on, there will be a strong need for true love and comfort. I know that the many family members and friends will be there for you. We must also remember that God will also be there for us. The scriptures clearly reveals God as the source of all tender love and comfort.( 2 Corinthians 1:3-4) God's love can be clearly seen in this wonderful promise that He makes known to people everywhere. This promise will even extend future benefits to our departed love ones. From the scriptures God tells us that He would soon rid the earth of all sicknesses and death.( Revelation 21:3-4) Can you imagine living during a time period where no resident will every get sick, grow old and die. Yet God's love goes even further. He now tells us from the pages of the bible that He would use His great powers to restore life back to billions of people who have died. John 5:28-29) This promise assures families like the Starks, that they will indeed see their love ones again. There are nine accounts in the bible that speaks of this grand arrangement from God. Here is just one such example recorded at John 11:38-44. Why not allow these verses to provide the family with true comfort. So please keep this promise of God near your hearts at all times. Remember that when God makes a promise, it always becomes a reality. For God does not lie.( Titus 1:2)
