    My heart goes out to you and the family. What you and the family are going through right now is painful. Jesus also feels the pain. John 11:33-35. Jesus will do more than just feel sorry for you and the family he will bring the so loved one back to life here on earth to live forever by means of the Kingdom in the Lord's Prayer. Acts 24:15; John 11:43,44; Psalm 37:11,29; Matthew 6:9,10. Jesus as King of God's Kingdom will get rid wars, fears, sickness, sorrow, death, tears, outcry and pain. Micah 4:3,4; Revelation 21:4,5. What Jesus did on earth was a small part of what he will do in God's Kingdom. Matthew 15:30,31; 6:9,10. I love to give comfort here's my email so you and the family can get more comfort

    To the family and friends, I would like to express my sincere condolences along with some words of encouragement. Many wonder can they be reunited with their love ones again. At John 5:28, 29 it gives us hope of a resurrection, the Bible gives us three reasons to believe in this promise. God is the source of life (Psalms 36:9) God has resurrected humans in the past. (John 11:39-44) God is eager to do it again. (Job 14, 15) to learn more visit

    I am very sorry for your loss. The Heavenly Father promises that there will come a time when there will be no more pain, suffering, and death (Revelation 21:3-5). We have the hope of seeing our dead loved ones again through the resurrection (Acts 24:15). May this bring you and your family comfort in your time of need.
