To the Swain Family: We are sorry to hear of Antwanna's death and wish to offer some encouraging news for her future. We all have prayed the "Our Father" prayer for God's Kingdom to come and his will to be done on earth. (Matthew 6:10) When God's Kingdom rules over the earth, sorrowful conditions such as sickness and death will no longer exist. Peace and happiness will fill the earth and no citizen of God's government will ever get sick again, never will they grow old again, and never will they die again. Jesus' ransom sacrifice offers Antwanna the opportunity of living forever on God's restored paradise earth. (Revelation 21:4) Our condolences for your loss!
