  6. To The Family and Friends of Wilbert Johnson:

    First, I would like to send my condolences to each and every one of you. Although we are not acquainted with one another, we all know what it feels like to lose a loved one to the enemy death. I’m sure that some of you are overwhelmed with sadness and that only shows that death is unnatural. Death was never supposed to be a part of life.

    Our Heavenly Father feels the pain that you are going through. He promises that the day is soon to come in which he will wipe the tears of sorrow from our eyes forever and death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3-5) He also promises that all those in the memorial tombs (graves) will hear his voice and come out. (John 5:28, 29)

    Until his words are fulfilled may each of you continue to take comfort in him.
