    I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the family. The loss of a loved one is a difficult experience. However, our Heavenly Father has promised a wonderful future when we will be reunited with our loved ones under perfect living conditions (Isaiah 65:20-25 and John 5:28,29). In the days to come, may these promises help to sustain your family. Take care.
