    My condolences to the family of Mr. Turner. I was saddened to read of the passing of your dear loved one. Death is such a horrible thing to experience, but we have the loving assurance from the Bible that God never wants to see anyone suffer emotionally or physically. (2 Cor 1:3,4). Our Heavenly Father has given us the wonderful hope of a resurrection in the near future (Acts 24:15). We can rely on the God of comfort to help us endure.
