Mis condolencias para la familia. Y que el Dios de todo consuelo le de paz en estos momentos difíciles. (2 Corintios 1:3,4)

Siento mucho por el dolor por el que están pasando por la reciente pérdida de su ser querido. Por eso les escribo para que sepan que la Biblia da esperanza. A mí me han consolado mucho las palabras de la escritura de Hechos 24:15-‘y tengo esperanza en cuanto a Dios, esperanza que estos mismos también abrigan, de que va a haber resurrección así de justos como de injustos.’
Que maravillosa esperanza el saber que podrán disfrutar de estar con Don José otra vez. Tengan la seguridad de que Dios así lo hará.
