To the Thompson family and friends please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one Donald.
When you lose a loved one in death it brings nothing but grief pain and sorrow that's because Jehovah God Psalms 83:18, never planned for us to die Genesis 1:27, 28, he views death as an enemy and very soon his son Jesus Christ will bring the Last Enemy death that affects all mankind to nothing 1st Corinthians 15:26.
Jesus Christ will resurrect the loved ones we have lost in death back to life Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21: 1-5.
