  7. Natalie says:

    I am so sorry for your loss. May God comfort your mourning hearts. I pray that you find comfort in Revelation 21:3-5. This scripture paints a picture of a world that is very different from what we see today. A world with no more sickness, pain or death…and it is not a dream, it is a promise from God. He promises to reverse the effects of death and resurrect your precious father, grandfather, and friend. You will never have to say a painful goodbye ever again!
    (John 11:11-14, 41-44;
    John 5:28, 29)
