    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. God promises to do away with sickness and death and the distress that results—permanently! We know this will happen because God gave Jesus the authority to heal the sick and power to raise the dead. The healings and resurrections performed by Jesus demonstrate this. (Luke 5:12, 13; John 11:39-44). Jesus’ kingdom government will bring to mankind this and so much more, yes “more than all we ask or imagine.” (Ephesians 3:20).
