"I'm thinking of you today and the terrible loss of your beloved daughter Jaclyn. Although I don't know you, I want to offer my heartfelt sympathy to you in your painful loss. I hope to share some words of comfort with you. Our loving God doesn't cause things like this to happen as James 1:13 helps us understand, ‘When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.’ For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone.’” When horrific things happen, it's because 'time and unexpected events (or, unforeseen occurrence) overtake them all.' We have the hope to be with our loved ones again when they are alive once more, through the resurrection; (Acts 24:15) and then we won't even remember the intense grief and emotional pain we feel now. - Isaiah 65:17b tells us that "the former things will not be called to mind, nor will they come up into the heart.” Then Revelation 21:4 will be fulfilled, 'And (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.'  - no more pain or death then! Psalms 37:9-11, 29 shows the conditions many will experience upon their resurrection, 'For evil men will be done away with...Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more; But the meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.' Romans 15:4 shows that comfort can be found in the Scriptures to help us wait until this wonderful time comes! Then to welcome back loved ones with a close and loving hug! In safety and peace forever! Take care, and I hope these verses will bring you a measure of comfort and peace. I'm very sorry for your sad and tragic loss of your beautiful and beloved daughter Jaclyn. Sincerely, Cindy Boyer"
