The death of someone you love is one of life’s greatest tragedies but the God who comforts all who mourn help to sustain you during this most difficult time, as you await the fulfillment of Gods promise to be reunited with your loved one again (John 6:40)

Family, I am sorry for the loss of Rodney, He will be missed. Please find comfort in God’s promise for the future found in the Bible. It tells us in Isaiah 25:8 that God will swallow up death forever. But for now there is encouragement. We have hope to see our loved ones who has died. Please go to and type in in resurrection. May you have strength at this painful time.

I am so very sorry for your loss. It is never an easy thing to lose someone in death. I find so much comfort in the Bible's hope of a resurrection. Acts 24:15 tells us ' that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." What a wonderful time we have to look forward to when will see our loved ones again very soon. It will be at time when we will never experience death or the pain of losing someone in death ever again. My sincerest condolences to the family and friends.
