I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Mr.Ralph.It is very difficult to loss someone we dearly love in death.But today we all have to face that enemy.But Our heavenly father gives us a hope in his word the bible," the resurrection hope". Bible shows that God has both the ability and the desire to bring back the dead. He keeps in his limitless memory a detailed record of each person he will resurrect by means of his almighty power.("Understanding the Almighty is beyond our reach,He is great in power,And he never violates his justice and abundant righteousness-(Job 37:23) So we can have our full trust in him that he will fulfill his word about the resurrection.
he promises to destroy this enemy, death, once and for all. The Bible teaches: “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” (1 Corinthians 15:26)
May these words help you to have a hope and comfort in this difficult time.
