I want to offer my condolences to the family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death. Even Jesus, when on earth, wept over the loss of a love one (John 11:33,35,38). Allow Our Heavenly Father to comfort you through the Scriptures__ 2 Corinthians 1: 3,4 вЂњPraised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from GodвЂќ It is comforting to know that He calls death an enemy and promised to remove it forever__ вЂњThe last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothingвЂќ (1 Corinthians 15:26). He also promised to undo the effect of death by waking up all our love ones in the memorial tombs__ Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." I hope these words give all of you comfort.
