To the family and friends of Mary Jackson,
I am sorry for your loss.
May you find comfort in the Bible’s hope that one day we will see our lost loved ones again.
Jesus showed how this promise is sure when he resurrected Lazarus. John 11:1-44.
Such bible truths provide us with hope and comfort as we look forward to the day when death will no longer be and those who have already succumbed to this enemy will be awakened onto a Paradisiac Earth, to a life free of sickness, pain, sorrow and the worries of ever dying again.
This being the Creator’s original purpose, it will indeed be fulfilled. Even though this wonderful Promise from the One who can and will fulfill it doesn’t take away our pain and grief with death, my wish is that this will bring you all a measure of comfort as it has for me when I lost my dad.
Revelation 21:3, 4; Isaiah 55:10, 11; Isaiah 25:8; John 6:40 and 1Corinthians 15:25, 26 🙏🏿
Like me you can learn more about these wonderful bible promises at

Thank you Barbara. I'm so grateful for you friendship.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathies for your loss. The Bible tells us that death will soon be gone forever at Rev.21:3-4. Jehovah hates death, he views it as an enemy according to (1Cor.15:26). Through his kingdom he will soon end suffering of mankind. Also the Bible says at (2Cor.1:2-4)”he is the God of comfort, he comforts those who sincerely look for him”.
May the memory of your love one bring you comfort and peace.🙏
