Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss you are all suffering. When Jesus was alive on earth he pointed to a wonderful future for all who have lost love ones in death. “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) “The hour is coming.” Jesus told his disciples that in the future God would provide a way for those who have died to be brought back to life. May this hope comfort your grieving hearts at this difficult time.
