    “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. The former things have passed away.”
    My sincere condolences to the Phillips family and those who knew and loved Craig on the loss of your dear loved one. May these words of Revelation 21:4 from our Heavenly Father Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) give you a measure of comfort and strength to endure during this time of grief and deep sorrow.
    The Bible promises at Acts 24:15 of a resurrection, and John 5:28,29 gives us a real hope of being reunited with our dead loved ones. If you need answers to life’s big questions such as: Will suffering ever end, and Can the dead really live again? The answer is yes!
