Message: To the Johnson family:

I'm very sorry for your loss. Losing our loved ones is distressing because we naturally want to keep living happily with our family and friends. (Ecclesiastes 3:11) It's

comforting to know that God has experienced the pain of death himself and understands how we feel. (1 Peter 5:7) Thankfully, our Creator has promised to change conditions on earth and in humans so that very soon we will be able to enjoy life forever, without ever again having to experience sickness, pain, sadness, or death. (Romans 5:21; Revelation 21:3, 4) He has also provided a sure hope that we will be able to see our loved ones alive and well again. (John 5:28, 29)

May you have comfort and peace during this difficult time.
