  5. The greatest comfort we could have when we lose those closest to us is the knowledge from God’s Word that death does not have the final say– Jesus does. May the promise of the Resurrection bring you peace, comfort, and victorious hope, even in the midst of your sorrow. I will miss you dearly my childhood friend.
