    My dear friends,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. We live in such difficult times but thankfully our loving Father, Jehovah God, views death as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26.) Surely, if our father looks at death as an enemy; He’ll do something to fix it . Please allow the promise found at Revelation 21:4 to help you to endure this difficult time.
