Dear family,
I am sorry to hear that you lost your dear loved one. May it comfort you to know that the true God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) has promised to resurrect our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. (John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15) May he watch over your family during this time of grief.

While you grieve, know you are not alone. God invites you to "Throw all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."(1 Peter 5:7) He promises to "Swallow up death forever."(Isaiah 25:8) Then you will have the hope of seeing your loved one again for the Bible confirms "There is going to be a resurrection."(Acts 24:15) My condolences to the Family."

Deepest condolences to the Dukes family. Find comfort in God's word where HE promises to do away with pain, suffering and death. Also John 5:28,29 where he promises to bring back to life those who have fallen asleep in death.
