My sincere condolences with the loss of your love one. May you find comfort in a real hope of being reunited with your love one at John 5:28,29. God has resurrected humans in the past (John 11:39-44) and is eager to do it again (Job 14:14,15). So may you look forward to the very near future when His original purpose for humans will be realized by means of His Beloved Son and our now reigning King, Christ Jesus. For answers to life's biggest questions you can go to

To the family, I offer my sympathies. Much comfort comes when we remember God’s promise of a resurrection. Jesus himself said“... I am the resurrection and the life”. (John 11:25, 26). These words give us hope for the future, knowing that through Jesus Christ we can have the sure hope of seeing our loved one again – happy and healthy. I again offer my sincere condolences
