I would like to offer my condolences to the family. I’m extremely sorry for the loss of your loved one. Please accept my sympathy for your tragic loss. Death is exactly as the Bible described it at 1 Corinthians 15:26 as “an enemy.” Please be aware that many in your situation have received comfort in the Bible’s promise at Revelation 21:3, 4 that soon, “there will be no more pain, death, or mourning.” What a comforting thought to know, that one day, we will not have to suffer the loss of our dear loved ones anymore! It’s my sincere wish that you were comforted by these words.
