My condolences to this family. The death of a loved one is never easy to cope with. However, Gods word the Bible gives us a wonderful hope for the future. John 11:25 promises there will be a resurrection of the ones who have fallen asleep in death. I hope this promise brings you some comfort and strength. -

I am so sorry for the family’s loss. Death is truly an enemy. May you find comfort from the future promise recorded in 1 Corinthians 15:26 which says “the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” This is a promise from God’s word the Bible and we can be certain he will fulfill his promises.
