I am so very sorry for your loss. It is my prayer that you receive solace in many happy memories. Comfort can also be found in the hope for the future God gives us in Revelation 21:4 where it says " "And HE will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more . neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore ."

To the family,

My heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one. May you find the comfort from the scriptures at Revelation 21:3,4.

Condolences to the Johnson family, truly sorry for the death of your loved one. There is so much suffering and sicknesses that causes death in this world today. Scriptures from the Bible gives us a hope for a better future. For example; John 5:28,29 speaks of a resurrection of those asleep in death. Revelation 21:4 tells us there will be no more pain, suffering nor death forever. Very soon a earth filled with love and happiness of reuniting with our loved ones. (Acts 24:15 and Psalm 37:29)
