    My heart aches for the family to lose, after just 47 short years, your precious loved one, Donny, way too young, way too soon. Words are so limited that can give comfort, so I would like to share with you a beautiful scripture where Jesus makes us a wonderful promise at John 5:28, which says: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…” . Our heavenly father promises us to do away with man’s worst enemy, death at Rev. 21: 3,4 which reads: “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say, “Look! “The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them.” “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” For more comforting scriptures please visit: Also, ( search “comfort” or “why we die”) has provided me with many more scriptures that have given me comfort and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. God’s kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises including the resurrection. John 6: 40 tells us: “For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day.” May these promises give you hope, comfort and peace in your time of grief. . I offer my sincere condolences to the family.
