Lamento mucho su pérdida. Perder a un ser querido es una experiencia muy dolorosa. Pero la Biblia nos da una esperanza muy bonita. Primero nos dice que los muertos no estan sufriendo. Dice que estan dormidos en la muerte (1 Tesalonicenses 4:14). En otras palabras Dios los despertara al resucitarlos. Jesucristo dijo: “Yo soy la resurrección y la vida. El que ejerce fe en mí, aunque muera, llegará a vivir" (Juan 11:25). El nos promete que "va haber una resurrección" de todos que se encuentran en las tumbas conmemorativas (Juan 5:28, 29).
