    Melvin had not been a part of our family for very long, but long enough to capture our hearts. He brought us joy and was a kind and sweet man, we can’t understand why this happened, but pray he isn’t suffering any longer. We love him and will miss him for all time.

      Dear Helen,

      I am so sorry for your loss. To loose our loved ones in death is not natural. The Bible tells us that, “Through one man [Adam] sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned.” (Romans 5:12) All of us have inherited sin and death from Adam. However, our loving heavenly father has made a way out for us by means of the ransom sacrafice of his dear son Jesus Christ. “For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive.” (1 Corinthians 15:22)

      Helen please be assured that your loved one is not suffering. The Bible says at Ecclesiastes 9:5, “For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all,…” The Bible compares death to sleep or rest, “After that he appeared to more than 500 brothers at one time, most of whom are still with us, though some have fallen asleep in death.” 1 Corinthians 15:6, Acts 7:60, John 11:11-14. From reading the scriptures above we can take comfort that our loved ones are not in pain but only in deep sleep.

      By means of Jesus ransom sacrifice we look forward to seeing our dead loved ones again. God promises at John 5:25 that, “the hour is coming, and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live.” Our loved ones will hear the voice of the son of God and will live again. What a joyous time that will be! Psalms 37:9-11, 29.

      Sympathy,
      Kalani and Nicole Lucas

    Dear Pendergrass Family,

    I am sorry for your loss. John 5:25 says, “…the hour is coming, and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live.” Jesus will resurrect our loved ones from the dead and they will live again; what a joyous time that will be.

    Sympathy,
    Kalani Lucas
