    It is comforting to know that the God of all comfort will completely remove all grief at the time of the earthly resurrection. The Bible at John 5:28,29 comforts us with the words, “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” God promises that “he will do away with death forever, and God will wipe away the tears from all faces. (Isaiah 25:8)
