    My deepest sympathy to the parents and family for the loss of your loved one,  your precious little Casey, and may Almighty God (Exodus 6:3) help to bring you comfort through His written word, the Bible, about His own future appointed time when He'll do away with everything on this eart that causes us pain, suffering and sorrow. In the future, this life that we are  presently  living will become a thing of the past, because God will  undo all the bad, ill and damaging effects that Adamic sin has on the whole human race, and then mankind will be able to live the real life, just the way God original intended for us to live. 1Corinthiand 15:21, 22.  Job 14:14, 15.  Jeremiah 29:11.  Acts 24:15.  Revelation 21:3, 4, 5.
