To the Vitale family, please accept my sincere condolences. It can be hard at a time like this to find comfort. But it is comforting to know that our heavenly father promises to eliminate our greatest enemy, death (1 Corinthians 15:26). Also take comfort in the promise at John 5:28,29 where it tells us soon we will be able to see our loved ones again. I hope these promises can help you to find comfort.
