     I would like to give heartwarming sympathy to the family and friends during this stressful time. Almighty God promised there will be a resurrection to life on a peaceful earth, where we can welcome our loved ones again These Scriptures from the Bible along with many more help to build our faith and hope in the resurrection: Acts 24:15, John 5:28 & 29,Psalm 37:29, Revelation 21:4)
