I am writing to give your family comfort from the scriptures. I promise you, the scriptures say YOU WILL SEE GEORGE AGAIN ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES.
Acts 17: 24,25
24 The God who made the world and all the things in it, being, as he is, Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in handmade temples 25 nor is he served by human hands as if he needed anything, because he himself gives to all people life and breath and all things.
Then Jesus raised his eyes heavenward and said: “Father, I thank you that you have heard me.42 True, I knew that you always hear me; but I spoke on account of the crowd standing around, so that they may believe that you sent me.”v 43 When he had said these things, he cried
God has resurrected humans in the past
John 11:39-45
39 Jesus said: “Take the stone away.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to him: “Lord, by now he must smell, for it has been four days.” 40 Jesus said to her: “Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”t 41 So they took the stone away. out with a loud voice: “Lazʹa·rus, come out!”w 44 The man who had been dead came out with his feet and hands bound with wrappings, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them: “Free him and let him go.”

God is eager to do it again
1 Corinthians 15:26
26 And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.b
