    Bob Trumpler says:
    So sorry to see that you have lost in death someone you love. I hope my remarks will ease your pain. Our heavenly father never wanted us to die and will soon destroy death. The hope for the dead is what Jesus said: a resurrection.  John 5: 28, 29. That's right! They will come to life again. When that happens they will be able to live forever, how?  Revelation 21: 3 & 4 gives the answer.
