Dear Family and friends of Joseph, may the God of all comfort be with you as you mourn your dear one. May all the good memories you shared be a source of comfort for you. I hope you find additional comfort in the promises of hope made by the God of the Bible - “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.”—Revelation 21:3, 5. Imagine a time in the future when no one will shed a single tear for pain ever again, and those in the grave will be brought back to life! - John 5:28. As we all look forward to that beautiful paradise where we and Joseph can live forever, i wish you God's peace.
