Keith, I wanted to express my deepest sympathies at the loss of your father. I pray God will bring you comfort and peace. You and Michelle are in my thoughts and prayers.
I was sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. Please take comfort from the Bible’s promise of a resurrection at John 5:28 & 29. The Bible gives us the wonderful prospect of seeing our loved ones again on a paradise earth. At Psalms 37:9-11, 29 it gives us the hope of living forever on a paradise earth with our loved ones. On this paradise earth Rev. 21:4 promises us that “death will be no more.” I know this may not relieve your deep grief at this time, but please take faith in God’s promises.
