I send my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your loved one Charles, I'm sure that he will be dearly missed by the many who loved him. We are deeply pained and grieved when our love ones die. Almighty God Jehovah has promised to end this tragedy. 1 Corinthians 15:26 says: "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." Soon mankind will be free from death and the pain and suffering it brings. Also John 5:25 says: "Most truly I say to you, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live." Soon our love ones that have died will live again bringing great joy to our hearts. We will live together forever on a paradise earth in peace where death, sickness, crime, injustice and suffering won't exist. May these promises from Almighty God Jehovah bring you comfort during your time of grief.
