I was saddened to hear that Anthony had passed away, but what helped bring comfort was to find that the Bible speaks of a time when death will be done away with:

Isa. 25:8, 9: “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. . . . And in that day one will certainly say: ‘Look! This is our God. We have hoped in him, and he will save us. This is Jehovah. We have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice in the salvation by him.’”

Also at John 5:28, 29: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”

I know you will still experience pain, grief, and sorrow but I hope that these scriptures will bring some measure of comfort to you.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your loved one. As you prepare to lay them to rest; to sleep in death for just a little while (John 11:11) I hope your family will find solace in the resurrection promise of Jesus; to awaken those who are now sleeping in death (John 5:28,29) to restore them back to life; this time with the hope to live eternally on the renewed Paradise earth, so that God, the Father’s will, will be done on the earth.-Matthew 6:9,10; Luke 23:43. Until that wonderful blessed promise is fulfilled, and you are reunited with your loved one again; may Jehovah God soothe your grieving hearts now and grant you peace and comfort, during this most sadden time..-Matthew 5:4.
