My condolences go out to the family of Mr.Wade Morrison. The Bible writer Job once asked "If a man does shall he live again "? (Job 14:14) Our Heavenly Father Jehovah(Psalms 83:18) cares and loves you. He is the God of all comfort and will comfort you during this sad time. (2Corinthians 1:3,4) He sent his only begotten son, Jesus Christ to die for mankind so that we might live. ( 1John 4:9; John 3:16) We look forward to God's promises at Revelation 21:3,4 and Isaiah 33:24 being fulfilled when death,sickness, and pain will be no more. May you have peace.
