    To the Jones family , I am so sorry for your loss, please accepted our condolences. (Revelation 21:3,4). In the near future we can expected Jesus words to come true at John 5:28,29 . There he promised that those sleeping in death will come back to life to live forever right here on earth (Psalms 37:9-11,29).

    I am so sorry for your loss, however, I have found comfort from the Scriptures that gives us hope for our deceased loved ones. Revelation 21:4 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.
