We are sorry to hear about your loss we pray that in the days ahead you will be fortified. May these words provide you hope and comfort during this your time of sadness. 1 Corinthians 15:21,22, “For since death came through a man, resurrection of the dead also comes through a man. For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive.” Jesus said of himself that he was the resurrection and the life at John 11:25. May God sustain you all during this time as well.
