Isaiah 41:10So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." The Good News: In heaven, we will feel no pain, no sorrow, and there will be no death.
May God hold him in his arms now, keep him in peace, and uplift his beautiful spirit.
