  1. You don’t know me but I would like to offer my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. God holds out a wonderful promise to all of us. A world free from death and sadness – a Paradise. The Bible scripture at Revelation 21:3,4 says – And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. Neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away!” Imagine – never having to grieve or mourn again! We can depend on this promise because it is from God’s word the Bible. I hope this offers some comfort during this difficult time.
