    Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. I know that Charles will be dearly missed. Please know that our Heavenly Father Jehovah views death as an “enemy” (1Cor. 15:26) By means of the resurrection, He has provided us with the promise, that in the near future, our loved ones will awaken from their sleep. (John 5:28,29) Through prayer and meditating on the scriptures, I hope that you find the sure hope, along with comfort and strength. (1Thess.4:13,14)
