We are very sorry to hear about the loss of Mr. Ransom. It is not easy to lose someone we dearly love. But we would like to share a scriptural promise that helped our family which recorded at Acts 24:15("And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust")promises that we will be able to see our dead loved ones again through a resurrection soon. And this promise is from our heavenly father ("In hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before times eternal" Titus 1:2) "who cannot lie"as the scripture promise.I hope and wish this scriptures give you some hope and comfort in this difficult situation.
