I want to offer my condolences to the Payne family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death, regardless of how long they have lived. Even Jesus wept when Lazarus died (John 11:35) and it pains our Creator, too. He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever__1 Corinthians 15:26 “the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” He promised to remove all pain, suffering, and death so that his human family will be able to enjoy life as he purposed__ Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” He has promised to awaken those asleep in death in the memorial tombs so they can be reunited with their love ones to enjoy true peace and happiness (Isaiah 26:19;Psalms 145:16). I hope these words give all of you comfort.
