I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy to the family for the loss of your dear loved one. I hope that you will find comfort in the words of Jesus at John 5:28, 29 where he promised that the day is coming when he is going to resurrect back to life those in the grave. And they will be brought back to a beautiful paradise earth with no more sickness. (Psalms 37:11, 29) (Isaiah 33:24) Until then, it is just like your dear loved one is sleeping. (John 11:11-13) May your family draw strength from Jehovah, the God of all Comfort. If you’d like to learn more about this beautiful hope, feel free to visit
