"I would like to send my deepest condolences the family of Mr. Beckett. I hope you find comfort in the many memories you have shared with Mr. Beckett. I can tell he will be missed by many. There is something comforting that I would like to share. It is in the bible at Acts 24:15 "There is going to be a resurrection." And also 1 Corinthians 15:26 "And the last enemy death will be brought to nothing." In the future Jehovah God will resurrect all those in the grave and reunite them with there families on the earth. He will also destory death forever. God yearns to do this because he views death as a enemy and He can't wait to resurrect all those sleeping in death. If you would like to find more comforting thoughts please go to"
