Dear Rodriguez family: So sorry to hear of your loss. Something that comforts me in these times is what the apostle Paul promised for the future at 1 Corinthians 15:26: "As the last enemy death is to be brought to nothing." I look forward to that time and when we will see our loved ones again. (John 5: 28, 29)
