Please accept my deepest sympathy for your family's loss. I know you must be grief-stricken at the death of your loved one, Richard. He had so many years ahead-so much to live for. The Bible has proven to be the best source of encouragement for such a difficult time. At 1 Corinthians 15:25, 26 the Bible shows that the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. So, untimely death will not claim someone so young like your beloved, Richard. The Bible at John 5:28, 29 shows that God yearns to reunite Richard with you by means of the resurrection, and lovingly has made provision to do so. I sincerely hope that these scriptures from the Bible will bring your family much comfort and hope, as you continue to treasure your wonderful memories of Richard.
