I would like to extend my condolences to the family for their loss. During such times, the scriptures can give comfort to grieving hearts. Please note the words of First Corinthians 15:21,22- "For since death came through a man, resurrection of the dead also comes through a man. For just as in ADAM, all are dying so also in the CHRIST, all will be made alive..."
