  1. I am sorry to read of your loss. Please accept these comforting words from the Holy Scriptures: “The resurrection of friends and family is part of the hope that the Bible sets out. Revelation 21:3, 4 gives more details: ‘God himself will be with [mankind]. And he 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.’ This means that any source of sadness in your life will soon be gone forever. What the Bible promises will come true, and you can enjoy its fulfillment. Just knowing that better times are ahead gives relief.”
