My sincere condolences to the family at this most difficult time. I just wanted to share some comforting scriptures that I pray will bring you comfort. The Holy Bible reveals that God proposes to remove all the distressing conditions that cause sorrow and pain, including death. He promises: "Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 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"-Revelation 21:3, 4. Very soon all our tears of sorrow will be turned into tears of joy, as this is God’s promise to us. “What happens when you die”, Find the Bible’s answers to this question at (Go to Bible Teachings -› Bible Questions Answered).
