    I am sorry to read of your loved one falling asleep in death , mankind's enemy, for only an enemy would cause so much pain and suffering. Jehovah assures that by means of his Kingdom, ruled by his Son Jesus Christ , our loved ones will be reunited with their families as the Scripture at John 5:28,29 come to fufillment which says: Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life....., May this scripture along with your treasured memories of your loved bring your family a measure of comfort.
