2 Corinthians 1:3,4 My hope is that you find strength and comfort through the “Father of tender mercies and God of all comfort”and his promises for the future. Acts 24:15, 1 Corinthians 15:26, Hebrews 2:15 all speak of a time when our God Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) through His son Jesus Christ will awaken our loved ones asleep in death. Please feel free to visit for additional comfort and a further look into this hope

I would like to first start off by saying, I’m so sorry for your lost. The lost of a loved one is so heart breaking and you may wonder will the suffering ever end? Well I’d like to leave you with this Text from the Bible. 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. The former things have passed away.” I hope you find comfort in this. I will keep you guys in my prayers.
