I want to send my deepest sympathy to the family of George Leroy Lancaster.
The bible tells us we can gain comfort from God, even during times of sorrow. We can pray to our heavenly father for help to cope with the sorrow felt from the death of a loved one.
“May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm.”—2 Thess. 2:16, 17.
The bible also promises that God “will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” (Revelation 21:4) How comforting and reassuring that is!
May you find comfort by relying on our heavenly father and learning more about the blessings of God's kingdom.

My condolences to the family for the loss of family member, the Bible says that God meant for people to live forever and death is an enemy therefore the Bible show that in the near future there will be a resurrection of the dead, just think what that will mean a reuniting of family. John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15 these prophesy will take place.
