My sincere condolences to the family at this time of loss. Even Jesus wept at the loss of a loved loved one. Please draw comfort from the scriptural promises at Acts 24:15 and Rev 21:3, 4 knowing that God cannot lie (Isaiah 46:10, 11).

My condolences to the family and all who loved Mr. Newman. The seeming finality of death is what makes it especially difficult. But God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. (Job 14:14,15) His Word, the Bible, gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29) May this bring you some comfort during this difficult time.В

I want to offer my condolences to the Newman family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death. Even Jesus, when on earth, felt the pain of others’ grief over the loss of a love one (John 11:33,35,38) and he still feels our pain. Ultimately Our Almighty Father of tender mercies knows your pain. He never purposed his human family to have health issues, grow old, and die, but to live in perfect health and a perfect life forever. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy and promised to remove sickness, old age, and death__ 1 Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing"; Isaiah 33:24 And no resident will say: "I am sick"; Isaiah 35:5,6; Job 33:24,25 “Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.” Finally, He promised to undo the effect of death by bringing our love ones in the memorial tombs back to life__ 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.” I hope these words give you all comfort.
