Dear Family,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dear loved one. Our loving Creator never planned for death to be part of his original plan. There is such a loving scripture found at Revelation 21: 3 & 4 which reads:
With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say " Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, And they will be his people. And God himself will be with them, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. The Former things have passed away."
I hope these words help you find comfort and also give you hope for our near future.
