It’s not easy to know what to say to one who has lost someone near and dear to them, but I sincerely hope that you and your family will take comfort in knowing that death will soon be done away with. The inspired words of our loving Heavenly Father tells us that …”He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” (Rev. 21:4)
