    I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sending my deepest sympathy and a comforting thought to the family of Mr. Joel Devalcourt. The Father of tender mercies and the GOD of all comfort, comforts us in all our tribulation. GOD made hope for the dead possible by sending His only begotten son Jesus Christ to die for us. And Jesus promised that the dead will live again. Read John 5:21, 28, 29.
