  4. You have my condolences in the loss of Kayzon Sr. When Lazarus died, Jesus told his disciples that he was going to awaken him. (John 11:11) Jesus knew that death is a deep sleep state in which the dead are waiting for the promised resurrection. (Acts 24:15). May you have faith in God’s promise that Kayzon will live again!p
