Death speaks to the living as we gather to celebrate a life which is temporarily cessated. The "good news" is that the dead in "Christ" shall be reunited in heaven one day with Jesus.
Ifind this hope most comforting. My sister suffered greatly with colon cancer and a life time of abuse/neglect. I was very sad when I came to the point of acceptance for God's will for my sister. God gave my sister relief/healing for her soul. She got to the point of acceptance and this gave me comfort before she drew her last breath here on earth. My sister wuld always say " I can't sing" and I would encourage her to try. When I think of her now, I can hear her singing with the voice of an angel. I can envision her smiling and saying, " death is not so bad, I don't have pain anymore and I can sing!" My sisters' death brought her relief and healing. Her death brought to me God's promise of salvation for her. She speaks to the living by her death, for she lives with Jesus now. Yes, I miss her, but only for a while.
