To the family of Bong Song I am so sorry for your lost. May you find comfort in knowing that Jehovah is close to the broken hearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalms 34:18. Please find comfort in these scriptures and in Jesus promise at John 5:28,29.

I'm so sorry for your loss, it's painful to lose someone you love. I would like to share with you and your family and friends an encouraging message from the Bible. Revelation 21:4 promises us that God will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain will be any more. The former things have passed away. You could be in pain right now but very soon God is going to turn things around and we know that for sure because the Bible gives us that promise. And the Bible is God`s word. Please read those scriptures with your Bible. I hope this message gives you courage during this time of bereavement.
