    To family and friends my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Losing a loved one in death is very painful and Almighty God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18;God's name) promises that he will resurrect millions of people who have died. "There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous." Read John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15. Learn more about Jesus Christ and how he will make God's wonderful promises come true at May the God of comfort and tender mercies sustain you during this most difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

    To the family and friends, I would like to express my sincere condolences along with some words of encouragement. The God of all comfort gives us a loving promise found at Revelation 21:3-5 that is totally different from what we experience today. There will be no more sickness, pain nor death. God (Psalms 83:18) promises to conquer that enemy, by reversing the effect of death and resurrect those that are in his memory and see them live forever on earth in perfect conditions.

It’s so sad to a lose a love one in death, but soon God’s kingdom will rule over mankind.(Matthew 6:10) Under that kingdom “no resident will say I am sick.”(Isaiah 33:24) There will be no death, no tears(Revelation 21:3,4) we will be able to live forever here on earth “in the abundance of peace.”(Psalms 37:11)
