Please accept my condolences for the passing of Mary. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15)

I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)

May you have joy in the memories of your loved one. (2 Corinthians 1:2-4) The
Bible gives real hope of being reunited again with your loved one. It promises
that your loved one will soon come back to life in the resurrection to a beautiful,
peaceful paradise on the earth. (John 5:28, 29)
