My condolences to the family: Almighty God promises to undo the problems Adam brought on the human family (Rom. 5:12); by means of God's kingdom (for which we pray at Matt 6:9-10) and by his son, Jesus' ransom sacrifice: the conditions of sin, suffering, and death will be removed and loved ones resurrected – Acts 24:10. What a hope! God Cannot lie

My condolences to the Lawton families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Anthony. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
