    My sincere condolences for your loss. I hope you are able to find comfort in the scriptures at Acts 24: 15 and John 5: 28,29 which gives is resurrection hope. At Revelation 21: 3-5 God brings out that in the future there will be no more pain and suffering. And we can look forward to what is written in Psalm 37: 9-11 and 29 about the meek will possess the earth.

    It was such a pleasure working with John. He was my buddy that didn't want to smile but did so because I asked him to. He will truly be missed. I am grateful our paths crossed. You have blessed me more than you will ever know. May God be with your family during this time and for days to come. Sleep in peace❤

    Please accept my condolences for your loss. Death is not easy to cope with. It is comforting to know that our loving heavenly Father understands your pain. He promises us that "He will do away with death forever and will wipe away the tears from all faces-Isaiah 25:8 May these word help your heart to heal during this painful time of grief. My deepest sympathy.
