    Was sorry to read aboute the los of your dear loved one. Death is very sad experience in life. Many wonder, why? The Bible teach that death pased on to al men because of adam’s sin.-romans 5:12. In facte the Bible teach that Jehová God is the source of life.-psalmos 36:9. In the near future Jesús wil bring the dead back to life and ate this time the Bible teach “death wil be no more.”-john 5:28,29;revelation 21:4. Yes Rafael as this ope of living again in paradise.-psalmos 37:1,29
