My condolences to the Poole family.It is a painful thing to lose a precious love one in death. Even Jesus wept when Lazarus died (John 11:35) and it pains our creator, too. Our loving Heavenly Father did not purpose his human family to die but purpose us to live and enjoy life. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:29). He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever__ 1 Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing”; Isaiah 25:8). He promised to awaken our love ones in the memorial tombs from asleep in death__ Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." He will then “satisfy the desire of every living thing” (Psalms 145:16). What a delight it will be to see them again to enjoy life as our Creator purposed! Allow these words to keep comforting all of you.
