Dear Blanca,Death leaves painful scars upon the hearts of the living. Think what it would mean to see a time when death would be no more! Never would you have to go to a cemetery and mourn the loss of someone you loved. The Bible says: “The last enemy, death is to be destroyed.”—1 Cor. 15:26. God will also “wipe out every tear” from our eyes and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. (Revelations 21:4). This comforting promise gives hope to those who mourn. It removes the awful feeling of finality that death brings and gives hope that loved ones that have died will live again.

I just wanted to leave my condolences and a comforting scripture. John 5:28 reads- 'Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." This speaks of a resurrection of our dead loved ones. I know you don't know me but you and the family will be in my prayers. When you have a chance, please visit for more some more comforting information.
