I wish to offer my sincere condolences to your family during this time of mourning. May your family look forward to a time in the near future when death will no longer be a regular part of life that we all experience. In fact, it will be completely done away with, and the righteous will have a permanent home. Isaiah 25:8 and Psalms 37:29 really assure us of that. Please find comfort in reading and meditating on those scriptures.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your dear loved one. Please know that in God’s word we find the answer to many questions. Job asked… “If a man dies, can he live again?” “You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.” (Job 14:14, 15) Job was convinced that his loving heavenly Father would yearn to resurrect him. Has God changed? “I am Jehovah; I do not change.” (Malachi 3:6) God still longs to see the dead brought back to life healthy and happy. You will rest, but you will stand up for your lot at the end of the days.” (Daniel 12:13). Hold on to the knowledge of knowing that your dear loved one is at peace now and resting. And know that God’s word assures us that billions who have died will live again. Find comfort at this time of bereavement in those words and in the memories that you hold so dear.
