So sorry for the loss of your family member and friend.
We have much to look forward to. In Revelation 21:4 the Bible tells us " And he will wipe our every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away".

Estimada familia Ortiz,
Por favor acepten mi más sentido pésame en estos momentos. La pérdida de un ser querido es muy doloroso. Por eso Dios nos ofrece consuelo. En Hechos 24:15 dice: “y tengo esperanza en cuanto a Dios, esperanza que estos mismos también abrigan, de que va a haber resurrección así de justos como de injustos.” Podemos confiar en esta promesa.
