  1. I am so sorry to read of the loss of your family member. Facing loss of someone so dear to us can be very devastating . I found that the Bible can be an encouragement to us when we are going through the stings of death of a love one. Jesus felt this pain also when he loss a dear love one in death and the Bible said that he even gave way to tears when his friend Lazarus died. ( John 11:35,36,41-44). But Almighty God has give Jesus the authority to eliminate death forever and even the tears that we shed will be the thing of the past ( Isaiah 25: 8 ,Revelation 21:3,4) We know that these things will come true, because whatever Almighty God Promises always comes true. He does not lie (Titus 1:2). . May your Family be strengthen by the love that God shows to all of us..
