    My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mary. When Jesus Christ was here on Earth he promised that he will resurrect the loved ones we have lost in death back to life Acts 24:15; John 5: 28,29. The promise that Jesus made for the loved ones we have lost in death will be fulfilled very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth under his kingdom rule Daniel 2:44 that he taught his followers to pray to come in the Lord's Prayer Matthew 6:10 no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21: 1-5.
