    Hello,,I wanted to express my condolences to the family ,the bible talks about about a comforting hope for the future.At Isaiah chap.25 verse 8,it says”He will swallow up death forever,and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces,For Jehovah himself has spoken it.There will be a time when death will be eliminated by God and the tears and the pain of losing someone we loved will be things of the past..It also says at Revelation 21,verse 4,, And he will wipe out every tear from there eyes and death will be no more,neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away,,So we have a real hope of seeing our loved ones again!!! I sincerely hope that these words from the bible will give some comfort during this trying time for the family…..Charles Holliman.
