Please accept my heartfelt sympathy fo the loss of your loved one, Alvin. May yo find comfort in the words written at John 5:28,29, where God promises to bring back to life those we have lost in death by means of a resurrection. In the near future He will also eliminate our enemy, death.(Revelation 21:4) This gives us the wonderful hope of being reunited with our loved ones, forever. Until then, I hope the memories of Alvin and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.
To the family, I am so sorry. I am at a loss for words, God bless all of you.
