    Dear Tessnear Family: My deepest sympathy for the family and friends of Thomas. We will never get used to losing our loved ones in death because as Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “We were created with everlasting life in view.” But may you find comfort in knowing that Almighty God has promised that soon he will swallow up death forever along with the pain that it brings. (Isaiah 25:8) God has also promised that he will return Thomas to you as it says at John 5:28,29. You can also learn more about what happens when a loved one dies at
