To the Brown family and friends please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one Jeanette. When we lose a loved one in death it brings nothing but grief pain and sorrow that's because Jehovah God Psalms 83:18 never planned for us to die he views death as an enemy and very soon his son Jesus Christ will bring the Last Enemy death that affects all mankind to nothing 1st Corinthians 15:26. Jesus Christ will proceed in resurrecting the loved ones we have lost in death back to life Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5
