I am truly sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the Bready family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection and the renewed Paradise earth, where death is an enemy that will very soon be eliminated forever, and no family will mourn the death of a loved one. This promise has been given by Almighty God Jehovah. Truly, what a glorious and almost unbelievable day that will be! It's a reality though for God cannot lie.
