Condolence: I am sorry for your tremendous loss. I did not have the pleasure of knowing Jack, but from your description he seems like a wonderful person. There is no pain more unbearable than loss. When we lose someone we love we replay our memories of them, trying to remember them just the way they were, but over time our memories fade. The Bible points to someone else who remembers those who have died. “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) ‘Those in the memorial tombs.’ This term refers to those who have died being in the ‘memory’ of God. He has not and will not forget them, his memory never fades. God will use his memory of them to bring them back to life. They “will hear his voice and come out.” May this future hope comfort your greiving hearts at this difficult time.
