    I would like to express my condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations 21:3-5] which says in part, that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.

    With Deep Sympathy.
