Please allow me to express my deepest condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. Nothing that can be said at this time will remove your grief. Something that has helped many to find comfort is found at Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10, which tells us that the dead are unconscious, in a condition best compared to sleep. So, there is no need to worry about what your dear loved one may go through after death, any more than worrying when you see your child sleeping soundly. Jesus spoke of a time when “all those in the memorial tombs” would “come out” to renewed life in a paradise earth at John 5:28, 29 and Luke 23:43.

Dearest parents, grandparetns, sisters, family and friends of this most precious young man, We are so deeply sorry for the earthly loss of your dear son. Please know (as i think you do) Dakarai is with the Lord getting his angel wings. Dear ones, we had a teenage son pass about 2 1/2 years ago, we know this emotional roller coaster you so desperately want to get off, we know it literally feels your heart is breaking into, we know you may yearn to join him, we know it is hard to look at pictures. "Doc" will send you signs from Heaven, watch for them. We have you tucked in the corners of our hearts, we think of you, we have you in our prayers for you to find some peace, some rest. Do try to take care of yourselves and one another, it is not easy. This is a VERY painful road to take, you are not alone. John and Sherri Andrews
