I would like to express my condolences to you for the loss of your wife, mother and sister, Ms. Billing. When someone you love dies, the pain and grief can seem unbearable. But it is at such a time as this in your life that God's Word, the Bible, can provide the greatest comfort. The promise made by Jesus Christ at John 5:28 lets us know that there is an opportunity to be reunited with our dead loved ones right here on a peaceful earth that his Father, Jehovah God, originally created it to be. This is a promise that we should all look forward to being fulfilled. Once again, I express my deepest sympathy.
