    My sincere sympathies to the Smith family. I'm very sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you during this period of mourning. A comforting thought at times like these can soothe the heart. The Bible reveals that it is God’s purpose to restore the dead to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and “death will be no more.” (Revelation 21:4) Jesus said: “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) Imagine seeing your dear loved ones again and being reunited with them. God has promised to make that a reality for his faithful ones
