  2. Dear Evans Family,
    I’m sorry for your loss. Nothing can really fully prepare us for the loss of a loved one. Whatever the case, the pain of death cannot be eluded, and its finality can be devastating. I’d like to share a few bible texts that have helped me with coping with the loss of a loved one. Isaiah 25:8,9 reads: “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord will certainly wipe the tears from all faces….And in that day one will certainly say: Look! This is our god. We have hoped in him, and he will save us. this is the LORD . we have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice the salvation by him”. Furthermore, Revelation 21:4 reads: “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more”. Some ask: “If a man dies, can he live again?” “When will the dead arise?” Did you know that Daniel 12;2 reads: “Many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up”. I hope these scriptures have given you some comfort and my condolences again.
