    To the family and friends,
          I am very sorry to here of the loss of your loved one.
           Where can we receive comfort when we grieve? 2Corinthians 1:3,4 in the Bible says:   ” Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,  who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.”   God comforts us by letting us know what happens to our loved ones when they die and gives us hope that hey will be brought back to life.  To see proof of this from your Bible ask any one of Jehovah’s Witnesses to show you.
            Also you can see a short vedio “Is There Hope for the Dead?”
