Reciban nuestras condolencias. Revelacion o Apocalipsis 21:4 dice que "Dios limpiara toda lágrima de los ojos y la muerte no será más". Y en Hechos 24:15 dice que "va ha haber una resurreccion". Entonces vemos que muy pronto Jehova Dios eliminara toda la maldad y el sufrimiento y les devolverá la vida a nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.
