  2. To the family, my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. May you find comfort in the knowledge that “there is going to be a resurrection,” as the Bible confirms at Acts 24:15. “Do not be amazed at this,” Jesus assures us, “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) By meditating on God’s promises found in the Bible, may you find real hope and the strength to keep going. (1 Th 4:13,14) Deepest sympathy.
