Dear Lagona Family & Friends,

I am so sorry for your lost, you have my deepest sympathy. My heartful prayers are for you doing this time. Michael will be truly missed, but rest assured that Michael is resting in peace for now.
Please find comfort from the bible promises that there is real hope for our loved ones who have fell asleep in death. Since the bible is the only book that tells us where we come from(Genesis 2:7) the purpose of life(Genesis 1:26,27, Isaiah 45:18), why we die(Genesis 2:17, Romans 5:12) what happens to us when we die (Genesis 3:19, Ecclesiaties 9:5) it also it tells us the future to include our love ones. Please enjoy the following passages where these promises are made: Isaiah 26:19, Job 14:15, John 5:28, 29 & Acts 24:15. Michael will awaken to wonderful conditions in the future unlike now, conditions that Revelation 21:3,4 promise no sickness, mourning, pain or death.

Thank you for reading these passage for comfort, hope and answers.
