earth is our real life; when it is only given unto us to prove our love, faith and faithfulness towards our Heaven Father and thus prepare ourselves for the real life in eternity. Because of this wrong impression of our life here on earth so many people live here on earth as if there was no hereafter; they care for the body only and neglect their soul entirely; they seek the things of the world but the kingdom of God and its righteousness they seek not, and so when they die we can have no hope that they have found it; but that they are lost eternally.

The sorrow brought upon this family is surely great, because no sympathy, no speaking and no prayer can bring back the husband and father and provider of this family. So for the comfort of your bereaved family I will say give yourself unto your Heavenly Father who loves us all dearly and who is able and willing to provide for us all. Trust in Him and He will not forsake you. Call

upon Him in your prayers and he will answer you and help you in your wants and needs. Love Him above all things. Believe in His Son, serve Him and He will serve you. Then He will give you not only the needs of this present life but also life eternal. And then when the Son of man calls you out of time into eternity you will be prepared for his coming and He will receive you where He is and you shall be with Him and like Him and that Heavenly mansion which Jesus Christ prepared for all believing ones; where tears and sorrow and death are unknown but where joy and happiness reign forever.
