My condolences to the family and friends of Police Officer Toshio Hirai. Losing a loved one is always difficult. Please try to take comfort in Jesus words found at John 5:28, 29 where he said that there would be a resurrection. Just think of the time when you will see your loved ones again, in paradise conditions, here on earth.
