    My deepest condolences to the family and friends. Please take comfort in our Heavenly Fathers promise for the future found in Isaiah 25:8. There he promises to "swallow up death forever" and to "wipe away the tears from ALL faces." Yes, soon God will eliminate death forever and restore humans to a beautiful paradise earth, where we can all live forever! (Psalms 37:29) I hope these wonderful thoughts can bring you comfort during this extremely difficult time.
