Dear Embrich family, At this time of grief and pain please accept my condolence and deep regrets for your loss and I'd like to share where I found help when this enemy death took my entire family. I found much comfort and hope in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 for there it tells us we'll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and at Isaiah25:8 we're told that this enemy death will be swallowed up forever. With these scriptures and others I'm now able to cope with my loss and get through each day because now I know I'll see my family again. I wanted to share this with you at this difficult time when comfort and hope is needed in hopes that this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you'll let me know if this has helped. Sincerely, GM
