    With heartfelt condolences to the family of Mr. Robert Tade. The grief from losing a loved one to death can be very difficult, but may your special memories help you to cope. And may God’s future promises bring you needed comfort, strength, and hope: Jesus said that “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his [Jesus’] voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.” (John 5:28, 29); “There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15); “The sea gave up the dead in it, and death and the Grave gave up the dead in them.” (Revelation 20:13); “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” -Revelation 21:4
