    • It’s heartbreaking having to mourn those whom we loved and cherished. My sincere condolences. May you find hope and comfort in this promise contained in Revelation 21:3, 4 “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. 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.”” See also Isaiah 25:8. Soon, by means of God’s Kingdom, no one will ever fall prey of this merciless ‘enemy’ (1 Corinthians 15:26).
