    George Mason says:
    "For I well know that my redeemer is alive; He will come later and rise up over the earth. After my skin  has thus been destroyed,   While yet in my flesh, I will see God."  (Job 19:25,26) "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,   and death will be no more, neither will mourning   nor outcry nor pain be anymore.  The former things   have passed away."  (Revelation 21:4)
