I am very sorry for your loss. It is not an easy time to go through. Talking about it with someone always helps, and their is no one better than God, he even gives us in the Bible Hope in John 5:28, 29 where he promises to bring back to life our loved ones. And in Revelation 21:4 he promises us a better future where we won't suffer no more. To know more visit

My sincere condolences to Lessie family. I just wanted to share with you the Bible's view of the resurrection.

The resurrections Jesus performed when on earth was a foregleam of what he will do in the near future as King of Gods Kingdom.

During his rule over the earth, the heavenly Jesus will bring back to life those humans who are asleep in mankind’s common grave . That is why he said: “I am the resurrection.”
(Like 11:25)

Think of the happiness you will feel when you see Lessie again! Think, too, of the joy she will experience!—Luke 8:51-56

To the Alexander Family: Our heartfelt condolences for your loss! We pray that you are comforted through the many promises found in God's word. Jesus, when on earth, taught his followers to pray for God's Kingdom to come and his will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:10) Jesus also tells us at John 6:40 that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and Jesus promises that he will resurrect these ones on the last day. The good news is that God offers Lessie the prospect of enjoying perfect health and endless life as a result of Jesus' ransom sacrifice in forgiveness of our sins! (John 3:16; Revelation 21:4) This is certainly good news worth sharing!
