There are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death; no doubt Mr. Dobson will be sadly missed by all who knew him. May you find comfort in knowing death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed. His word is clear, “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces”. (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4) Further, the Bible guarantees the restoration of life. Jesus spoke of the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), performed resurrections and was himself resurrected by his Father. All resurrections took place on earth, giving us a glimpse of what is to come! (Acts 24:15) Until his promises are fulfilled, may Jehovah God continue to bless your family in the days ahead, as you cherish the many fond memories of Mr. Dobson......
