I want to offer my condolences to the Davis family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death, regardless of how long they have Lived; even Jesus, when Lazarus died, "gave way to tears"(John 11: 35). . Our heavenly Father of tender mercies knows your pain and has promised to awaken our love ones from sleep in death__ Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life" then "he will swallow up death forever Ö" (Isaiah 25:8). I hope these words give all of you comfort.
