    George Mason says:
    When a baby enters the world, we are instantly happy.  Birth is natural to humans, but though humans have been subjected to death for over 7000 years, it never feels natural. We know that death will overtake us at some point, but we are never happy when it occurs to our loved ones.  May you find comfort in knowing that the Holy Scriptures point to a time when death will be no more! This is no mere pipe dream, for there are examples of individuals who were resurrected,  the foremost one was our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."     (John 5:28,29)
