I extend my heartfelt sympathy to Arthur's family. I know he will be sorely missed and fondly remembered for his kindness and good spirit. You can find great comfort in the hope for the future present in the bible. At Isaiah 25: 8, the Bible promises a time when God “will swallow up death forever.” Also, Acts 24:15 boldly states, "there is going to be a resurrection." The resurrection this verse talks about will give us the opportunity to see our lost loved ones again on Earth. It will surely be a delight to see Arthur again!
