  6. To the family of Nancy, you have my deepest sympathy in your loss. Death of a loved one is a difficult situation to face. God’s original purpose was for the human family to become many, fill the earth, and to live forever upon it.(Genesis 1:28) Because of Adam’s disobedience, sin and death have been passed on to us. (Romans 5:12) God’s purpose did not change, and will come true when the dead are restored to perfect life! (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:29)
