  5. Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one, Steven. May you find comfort in the words written at Acts 24:15, where God promises to bring back to life those we have lost in death by means of a resurrection. In the future He will also eliminate our enemy, death.(Isaiah 25:8) This gives us the wonderful hope of being reunited with our loved ones, forever. Until then, I hope the memories of Steven and these promises from God comfort you in the dsys to come.
