I want to express my condolences to the bereaved family. Death is an enemy and soon our Heavenly Father will conquer it forever. It will be done by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again. Job was inspired to write: "If a man dies, can he live again? ....You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands." May this heart-warming promise along with countless others console you in this tragic time. Job 14:14, 15
