  3. To the family of Joseph, you have my condolences in your loss. Death is one of the most difficult situations we must face. However, our Heavenly Father assures us at Isaiah 25:8 that “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” May you find comfort in reading God’s promise of the resurrection of the dead in the Bible at Acts 24:15; John 5:28 and Revelation 21:4.
