    Please accept my deepest sympathy for your great loss.
    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. 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.
