    I am writing to your family to give you my condolences for the loss of your loved one. In God’s word, The Bible, it tells us at Revelation 21:3, 4 that death will be no more right here on earth. Please read that scripture from your Bible or you can Google it or download a free Bible

    “…there is going to be a resurrection…”​—Acts 24:15, right here on earth and soon you can see your loved one again (John 5:28, 29).

    God has resurrected humans in the past. The Bible reports eight instances of humans​—young, old, male, and female—​who were brought back to life on earth. Some had been dead for a short while, but one had been in a tomb for four days!​—John 11:39-44.

    God is eager to do it again. God hates death; he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again.​—Job 14:14, 15. Psalms 37:9-11, 29.

    I wish to express my deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone cannot ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, “And he(GOD) 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”. May God give you comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our love ones we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected John 5:28-29. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days
