To the Vargas family,
We are so sorry to read of your loss. How we long and look forward to the fulfillment of God's promise of the time when death will no longer exist. Revelation 21:4 is so comforting, for it tells us - "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I hope it comforts you as well to know one day we won't grieve at all.
