    My deepest sympathy to the family for the loss of your dearly beloved one, may your hearts find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ love us –Romans 5:8 Psalms 83:18. Jesus Christ promised one day soon, we will have the prospect of seeing our dear loved ones again here on earth and the disease of aging will be no more –Job 33:25 John 5:28, 29 Psalms 37:29.
