To the family of Mr. Daniel Skodzinski: I would like to express my condolences to you for the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. When someone you love dies, the thought of never being able to see or talk to them again can be most difficult to bear. But Jesus promised at John 5:28,29 that millions now dead will live again in the future on this earth. While Jesus was on earth, he showed that he is able to resurrect the dead. So this promise can mean a real hope of being reunited with Mr. Skodzinski again. Imagine the joy you will feel when he is brought back to life to receive the fulfillment of this promise.
