My sincere condolences to the family for your loss. May you find comfort in God's promise of a resurrection on a paradise earth where all causes of human suffering and death will be no more. John 5:28,29. Revelation 21:3,4.

To the Family of Opston Guillory, Jr., Please accept my heartfelt condolences. It is always painful to lose a loved one. I too have lost many dear ones to death. A real source of hope for me is the Lord’s prayer. Jesus’ words at Matthew chapter 6, verse 10 say: ‘Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth.’ I find this comforting because nowhere in the Bible is sickness or death mentioned as occurring in heaven; hence, I look forward to seeing God’s will for the earth to be carried out just as it is in heaven. The kingdom hope helps me to cope with my loss of loved ones. It also emphasizes Almighty God’s purpose for the earth- (Psalm 115:16; Psalm 37:29), and Jesus’ words at Luke 23:43 regarding Paradise. One question you might want an answer to then Is: ‘How will God’s kingdom alleviate the pain death causes?’ An encouraging response is found in your Bible. –1 Corinthians 15:26. I sincerely hope that these Scriptures and words serve as some comfort to you at this time.

I am sincerely sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah knows the pain of heart we feel when we lose a loved one in death and in his word the bible he offers comfort and hope. Revelation 21:3,4 is a promise from God that he will wipe every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. He furnishes a guarantee that the dead will live again by resurrecting his own precious son Christ Jesus from death. Acts 17:31. Under God's heavenly kingdom government Jesus will make the resurrection hope a reality. John 5:28,29. I have found strength and comfort in Jehovah's promise, may it do the same for you.
