    I would like to express my sincere condolences to you and your family on the loss of your father and grandfather. Even though the sting of death is hard to deal with for your family right now, the Bible gives each and every one of us the reassuring hope found at John 11:25, where Jesus promises us the resurrection which he talked about and demonstrated while he was on the earth. This scripture allows us to see that death is not permanent and that soon you will be able to see your beloved family member again. Even though Robert is asleep in death right now, he is no longer suffering and when he wakes up he will be in perfect health, living on a fully cleansed Earth and waiting to welcome back family and friends with open arms. I hope these words from the Bible provide you with Comfort at this most difficult of times.
