Message: I am sorry for your loss.  Losing a loved one in death is such a difficult thing to experience.  Please be comforted by the promises in the Bible.  At John 5:28 & 29, Jesus tells us that all those in the grave will hear his voice and come out.  What a loving provision put in place by the God of all comfort for those who know Him, so we can have the assured hope of seeing our dead loved ones live again one day.  Meanwhile as I pray for that day to come I ask God to bless your family and give each of you the strength to endure this most trying time.
