And no resident will say: “I am sick…”Isa 33:24. We can be sure of this reality because God has promised as seen from his divine words about the near future; perhaps you or I may see those missing from our lives due to sickness or tragic injury that lead to death. Prayers go out to the surviving family and friends.

Come uno possa esprimere il grande dolore per la perdita di una persona che ha segnato la mia vita di tifoso personale di Giorgio. Ha rappresentato l'appartenenza, l'onore, l'orgoglio, l'amore, la stima, la forza, la sfida. Ti voglio bene Giorgio per l'eternita' . Francesco Iacobini, tifoso della Lazio

Allora udii un'alta voce dal trono dire: “Ecco, la tenda di Dio è col genere umano ed egli risiederà con loro, ed essi saranno suoi popoli.E Dio stesso sarà con loro.Ed egli asciugherà ogni lacrima dai loro occhi, e la morte non ci sarà più, né ci sarà più cordoglio né grido né dolore. Le cose precedenti sono passate”.
