To the Guillory Dupre family, I'm so sorry for your loss. The death of a loved one is not something we were suppose to experience, as bought out in Ecclesiastes 3:11(a): He (God) has even put eternity in their (mankind) heart. So please allow God's word, the Bible, comfort you at Acts 24:15 that States: And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. So there is hope for our dead love ones. Please visit our website www.jw.org for more Bible base knowledge of God, his son Jesus, and the plans he has for us all. My prayers are with you and your family.
