  1. Hortencia, mis más profundas condolencias. Las palabras no pueden expresar el dolor y la tristeza de perder a nuestros seres queridos. Nos conforta saber que en un futuro muy cercano, veremos la promesa en Revelacion 21:4 cumplida donde dice: “Y limpiará toda lágrima de sus ojos, y la muerte no será más, ni existirá ya más lamento ni clamor ni dolor. Las cosas anteriores han pasado”. Tenemos la esperanza de dar la bienvenida a nuestros seres queridos por medio de una resurrección terrenal según Juan 5:28, 29. Hasta este momento, espero que los recuerdos de Jose te ayuden a aliviar tu dolor y tu tristeza. Que el “Dios de todo consuelo” esté con ustedes ahora y en los días difíciles por delante. (2 Corintios 1:3,4)
