I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the family. A wonderful promise is found in Revelation 21:4 which says, "He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Just imagine what joy we will feel when we greet our loved ones again.
