Condolence: No matter how long our loved ones are with us, death always brings pain and sorrow. The reason for this pain, as stated in the Bible, is that death is an enemy. Almighty God Jehovah will soon eliminate this enemy, 1 Corinthians 15:26; then the promise at Revelation 21:4 ‘death will be no more’ will be fulfilled. Until then, draw strength from one another, hold your memories close and lean on God for ‘everlasting comfort and good hope’ to cope in the days ahead, 2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17 and John 5:21. My deepest sympathy.
