My deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences for John's family and friends. Losing someone we love is truly heartbreaking. I want to take a moment and share something that has given me much personal comfort and hope. It is the scriptural promise at Daniel 12:2 "And many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up, some to everlasting life." Losing a loved one in death is not the end, we have a beautiful hope just ahead. How we long to see them again and be reunited forever.
