  1. Dear Mr. Coles and Debra I am so sorry to hear about Jennie. I wanted to share with you a few comforting words from the Bible. Jehovah God did not created humans to die. We were made to live forever. The Bible shows that those who have died have a hope of a resurrection. John 5:28, 29 -Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who did bad things to a resurrection of judgment.- Yes the Bible said we would be able to see those who have died again. Where would we see them? Right here on a paradise earth. The Bible states at Psalms 37:11,12 states -And just a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no more; and you will certainly give attention to his place and he will not be. But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, and they will find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.- This is what Jehovah God has promise the Bible says he can\’t lie. In the meantime we have his word to guide us through this sad time. We have also the hope that death and pain will no longer exist which Revelation 21:3,4 brings out. May these words help comfort you at this time.
