    With deepest sympathy. Sorry about the loss of your son.

  9. To the Family. SO sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that David has the prospect of being resurrected (in the flesh) to Paradise Earth as God has promised. The vast majority will have everlasting life here on earth. God’s Kingdom will do this under the Rulership of Jesus Christ. READ John 5:28, 29, Job 14:14, 15 and Revelation 21:2-4
