To the Lawson family, I send my codolences. You know after the death of his close friend Lazrarus, "Jesus gave way to tears." (John 11:35) It is most certain normal for us to greif, even Jesus grieved. However, we can draw comfort in knowing that in Revelation 21:4 it says, "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more," he being God.
