  4. Dear Manista Family,
    I am so sorry to have read of your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. Something that I have personally found to be of great comfort is what the Bible says at John 5:28,29 as well as Revelaiton 21:4. In these verses we find comforting promises of a much better future in which the causes we now have for suffering will no longer exist. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my sicnere hope that these thoughts comfort your family as well. Again I am so sorry for your loss.
