The loss of a loved one in death is very difficult to handle. One thing that has always comforted me during such a time is the hope for the dead mentioned at Acts 24 :15. Also the fact that one day "death will be no more" at Revelation 21:3,4. This is a promise that Jehovah God will fulfill in the near future. Please accept my sincere condolences.
Dear Barnes Family.
I'm deeply sorry of the passing of your loved one, Carol, I really hope this scripture can comfort you and your family. It's in 2Corinthians 1:3 which tells us of the Father of tender mercies and the God of comfort.
