My sincere condolences for the loss of Mr. Almon. The death of a loved one is definitely one of the hardest things a human has to face. It is not impossible to continue. Millions have found peace and genuine comfort from the true hope the Bible offers. Hosea 13:14 brings us comfort because God let's us know that, "from the power of the Grave I will redeem them: from death I will recover them." Yes, death has more power than humans but it will never stand up to God. Isaiah 25:8 says that Jehovah, God's name, will "swallow up death forever." How comforting it is to know this. Mr. Almon has a hope. A true hope. May this bring you comfort and once again, I am so very sorry for your loss.
