My deepest sympathies to the Lee family and friends. I know this is a difficult time for you. Losing a loved one in death is never easy. God's word the Bible offers comfort for the family but gives hope for both the family and the deceased. At John 6:40 Jesus stated, "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.” Moreover Jehovah God has promised to make all thigs new as stated at Revelation 21:4,5, "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. The former things have passed away.” And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new." Reflect on these promises as well as your memories to get you through the days ahead.
