Dear loving family of Denise,
I'm very sorry for the tragic loss of your beloved daughter Denise. Although I don't know you, and I didn't know your dear and precious daughter Denise, please accept my heartfelt sympathy for you and your family in your severe and painful loss.
In the hope that you will find some an added measure of comfort in your grief and sorrow; I want to share what continues to bring me comfort in my most painful losses in my life. That of my beloved Mom and Dad and youngest brother. They all died within the past little over 3 1/2 years and my brother died suddenly and very unexpectedly at age 51 a little over 1 1/2 years ago
I think about the fact that they’re not suffering in any way and that means a lot to me! And I look forward to the time for the resurrection! I hope to be here then to welcome them each back to life with a close and loving hug
Acts 24:15 promises “that there is going to be a resurrection.” Ecclesiastes 9:11b explains why many die; that “time and unexpected events (Or, “unforeseen occurrence”) that overtake them all.
Our loving God doesn’t cause sad things to happen to our loved ones, as James 1:13 helps us to understand. There it reads, ‘When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.’ For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone.’
2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 speak of God as “the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.” And Isaiah 65:17b tells us that the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart.” - Thus the intense sadness that we experience now, won’t even be remembered after Jehovah God resurrects our loved ones; thereby undoing the sad effects of death and the pain being separated from them brings.
Revelation 21:4 tells of the wonderful time when no one will ever die again; and then no more mourning or sadness, “And (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.
Psalms 37:10, 11, 29 tell of the hope for many upon their resurrection, to be welcomed back to life by their loved ones and then to live here on the earth when it’s restored to Paradise conditions! Then no wicked, the meek will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace to live forever upon the earth! To live the way our Creator meant for us to live, then even the animals will be peaceful and safe as Isaiah 11:6-9 says. No more sickness of any kind as Isaiah 33:24 says, ‘No resident will say: “I am sick.’” Then no more tragedies to
separate beloved family from each other!
I hope that you will find comfort in your memories, perhaps by looking at pictures. And I hope that these and other verses will help you too. Romans 15:4 say, "For all the things that were written beforehand were written for our instruction, so that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope.
