  • Although your hearts are filled with pain and sorrows, my hope is that you gain comfort from God’s promise to reunite us with our loved ones on the earth; never having to say goodbye again. For Jesus will make this earth the problem-free paradise that his Father intended it to be. Revelation 21:4; and John 5:28, 29 speaks of that resurrection. May the God of comfort give you peace through His Scritpures.
