Please accept my condolences for the loss of Lafayette. Death is never an easy thing to accept. The scriptures even refer to it as “the last enemy death, is to be brought to nothing” -1Corinthians 15:26.
So we are assured that at some point there will be “no more death” Rev 21:3,4 and that it will be “a thing of the past”. However we are not left without hope because at John 5:28,29 it does say that “there will be a resurrection”.

May you find comfort in that hope along with peace.

Your Friends at Aircuity
