    Please accept my deepest sympathy for lost of your mother.
    When we loose a loved in death it is very hard to deal with, a helpless feeling.
    Even Jesus Christ gave way to tears when is friend Lazarus died at John 11:21-44. Jesus spoke of a resurrection in fact at John 5:28,29 he said that all those in the memorial tombs will come out. Even when he died he told the evil doer that died next to him that he would be in Paradise. John in Revelation 21;3-5 wrote that even death would be no more, when the tent of God is with mankind. Jesus even spoke about this in his sermon on the mount at Mathew 5:5, here Jesus was referring to Psalms 37:11 and how long would they live? Note verse 29. What a wonderful hope for mankind. The Bible has much to say about the resurrection and hope. A wonderful website to have our Bible questions answered is It is absolutely free with free downloads of the Bible and many Bible questions answered. May the God who gives peace and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ comfort you with his spirit. Bill Conlon
