  1. I would like to express my sincere sympathy to the family and also share a comforting promise from God’s Word the Bible. In it he promises to complete his purpose for the earth to be a beautiful paradise, free from suffering, pain, heartache, and mourning (Revelation 21:3,4).
    We will look around one day and see these things are no longer the reality, but a distant memory. (Psalm 37:10,11)
    He also promises to bring our loved ones back to be reunited with us. (John 5:28,29)
    Until that time, Jehovah God assures us at Psalm 34:18 that he “is close to the brokenhearted” and “He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” So he strongly desires to give you the strength you need to cope during this time. (Philippians 4:13)
