To the family of Jose Matoes
Please accept my sincere condolences. I have taken comfort knowing that God . . . will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain.”—Revelation 21:3, 4
The Bible, however, holds out a much different hope. As we have previously noted, the Scriptures indicate that it is possible to be reunited with your dead loved one in the near future, not in an unknown heaven but right here on earth under peaceful, righteous conditions. And at that time humans will have the prospect of enjoying perfect health, and they will never have to die again. ‘But surely that is wishful thinking!’ for some may say. For words of encouragement please go to

My deepest condolences for the family. We can take comfort in these words from the Bible: "He will swallow up death forever and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces". (Isaiah 25:8) Be assured that God understand all that we go through and wants to give us hope for better things to come.
