    Henry, and the rest of the Dixon’s family, I am so sorry for your loss, you have our condolences. Though this is a sad occasion the Bible bring immeasurable comfort to those who grieve. Imagine a time in the near future when those sleeping in the grave will be brought back to life to live right here on earth! ( John 11:11-14, 38-44). Describing what condition will then be like, the Bible states that God “will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:3,4)
