    I am sorry to hear of your loss. Death is an enemy to us all. It is especially an enemy when it strike someone dear to us. God is more powerful than death and he promise to get rid of this enemy once and for all. The Bible teaches: "As the last enemy, death will be brought to nothing." (1Corinthians 15:26) Then John 5:28 will be fulfilled: "Marvel not at this, for the hour is coming when all that are in the graves shall hear his voice and come forth." I hope this message will offer comfort in your time of sadness.
