My sincere condolences are extended to the Lineberry family for the loss of your dear loved one. Please know that our heavenly Father truly cares about you and feels the pain you are going through. Death was never part of God’s original purpose for mankind, so it greatly pains Him to lose one of His people. (Psalm 116:15) Therefore, at Isaiah 26:19, God promises that death will only be temporary, for He will soon restore our lost loved ones to life right here on the earth. What a wonderful time we have to look forward to! Until this loving promise is fulfilled, may your fond memories of Mr. Lineberry bring you solace at this difficult time.

Philippians 4:7 says "the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus." Thus, the Creator Jehovah God has promised all of us the resurrection and no more mourning and no more pain (Revelation 21:4) May God's loving kindness comfort you and help you through this very sad time (Psalms 29:11)
