May this family always have fond memories of the good times you had together and the memories of a life well-lived. I know these are difficult times, but please remember the promises found in The bible from a God that cannot lie. Promises of a paradise where we can live forever in peace. No sorrow, no pain, no death. Revelation 21:3,4

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 God will fulfill the promises from his word.
