  8. My deepest sympathy to the family on the passing of your loved one. May God Almighty(Psalms 83:18) , the father of tender mercies comfort all of you. His word at John 5:25 tells us that there is hope of resurrection for our loved ones meaning that the dead will come back to life in the future so near now. May God (Psalms 83:18) whose promises never fail continue to strengthen you through the pages of His word the Bible, and keep the family together.
