    I am sorry for the sudden loss of your loved one. Death robs us of the ones we love too often. The Bible offers us hope. John 5:28, 29: “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, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” All those in the memorial tombs, those who have died will be brought back to life. We can have faith that this will happen. Revelation 21:5, “And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new.” Also he says: “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” I know these words don’t take away your pain, but that can help you to cope. Please accept my condolences at this time.
