    I would like to extend my condolences to the family. The loss of a loved one I see surely a difficult experience. However, our Heavenly Father promises a wonderful future, when we will be reunited with our dear loved ones under perfect living conditions ( John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:3,4). By reflecting on these divine promises, your family can be encouraged during this sad time. Take care.
