Dear Irby family, I am sorry to read the obituary of your dear loved one. Death is certainly an enemy that take those we love and leave much pain and a void in our hearts. The Bible informs us that Almighty God is the source of life. (Psalm 36:9) Soon He will bring about that Heavenly Kingdom we have prayed for to rule over mankind on a peaceful earth. (Matthew 6:9,10) During that time we will have the joy of welcoming our loved ones from the sleep of death. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29)
