    There is much that anyone could say when a person dies and even though I didnt know him, Im sure that the ones who did, will miss him greatly, as he made an impression on them, that will last forever amd that is the reason Im writing this to the Family. See there is a very comforting message of real hope that all must read for them selves and it comes from the Creator him self, Jehovah God and his Son, Jesus Christ. We find his Son, in John 5:28,29 giving us a future promise of himself using the power his Father, Jehovah God, to resurrect ones like yr dear loved one, back to life again and as that may surprise you, it isnt a feat that God cant do. But when he is brought back to life, he will be given the opportunity to live forever as the Bible hints at, in Psalm 37:29 which reads: The righteous will possess the earth and they will live forever on it. So you see, from these two passages, we see that God will give his Son the power to bring back our dead love ones amd also give them the opportunity to live forever on a peaceful earth.
