I would like to offer my deepest sympathies to the family and friends. The Bible offers hope and can be an encouragement when you face difficult circumstances such as the loss of a loved one. John 6:40 assures us that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and be resurrected on the last day. Why? Jesus states that, "this is the will of my Father." Rejoice in this beautiful promise from our loving Heavenly Father Jehovah.
I’m very sorry for your loss. May the love of family, friends and Almighty God bring you strength and comfort during your time of grief. (Isaiah 41:10) May the resurrection promise found at John 5:28, 29 bring hope and peace.
