Dear family and friends of Dante Lippi, I am deeply sorry for your loss. I too have lost many loved ones in death. It truly is the most heart-wrenching experience to go through. A promise made by Jesus Christ has helped me to cope, to survive really, many times. Jesus talked about a resurrection of the dead in a Paradise Earth where all of us will see our loved ones again! Jesus promises in John 5:28, 29: “All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” Another comforting Scripture, one of my personal favorites, is Isaiah 65:21, 22. I think Dante would have loved this scripture. Speaking of those who will be living on the paradise Earth under God’s Kingdom rule, it says: “They will build houses and live in them, And they will plant vineyards and eat their fruitage. They will not build for someone else to inhabit, Nor will they plant for others to eat. For the days of my people will be like the days of a tree, And the work of their hands my chosen ones will enjoy to the full.” I hope these verses comfort you as they have comforted me. My heart and prayers go out to you. Below is a link to a very encouraging Bible-based brochure entitled, When Someone You Love Dies. Please use your personal Bible with this brochure as you read it in the months ahead. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/when-someone-dies/ Your Neighbor, Izzy
