Dear Elam family: It breaks our hearts when death separates us from our loved ones no matter how young or how old they may happen to be. We are reminded in the Bible that there is One who sees our distress and pain and has promised (soon) that death will be done away with...swallowed up forever. (Isaiah 25:8) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our precious loved ones to life again. (John 5:28, 29) I hope in the days ahead as you reflect on the life of your loved one, and the precious memories left behind, that you will also find much comfort in God's promises to us for the near future, for they will come true. (Titus 1:2) To learn more about this wonderful hope please visit and search, “When a loved one dies.”
