God did not purpose his human family to suffer death, but purposed us to live and enjoy life. That’s still his purpose (Psalm 37:11, 29). May the family draw comfort from the scriptural promises at Acts 24:15 and Rev 21:3, 4 knowing that God cannot lie (Isaiah 46:10, 11).

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your dear loved one Mr Ray. May God’s Word the Bible bring comfort to your family during this difficult time, because it offers the wonderful hope of seeing him again when there is no more sickness, suffering and even death all will be gone forever. (Revelations 21:3,4; Isaiah 33:24; Acts 24:15)
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I want to offer my condolences to the Ray family and friends. Our Almighty Heavenly Father knows the pain you feel from the loss of your love one. He did not purpose his human family to die but to live and enjoy life forever. This is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever along with all pain and suffering__ 1 Corinthians 15:26; Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” Notice his promise to awaken all those in the memorial tombs from asleep in deathВ¬__ Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will live ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." What a delight it will be to see them again! Allow these words to keep comforting all of you.В
