    To the family of Mr. Elias Kokolis: I would like to express my condolences to you for the loss of your son, brother and grandson. Mere words cannot convey the overwhelming grief that can result from an unexpected loss, especially at such a young age. But during such a time as this in your life, the Bible, can provide words of comfort because it is inspired by our loving Creator, "the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our tribulation" as stated in 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. One way is through the promise that Jesus made at John 5:28, that the hour is coming when all those in their graves will hear Jesus' voice and be resurrected back to life. And this will include Elias. In the past Jesus demonstrated that he is able to perform such resurrections, so we can assume that he is also willing and able to do it again. What joy you will feel to be reunited with your dead loved one again.

    My Condolences to the entire Kokolis family. The Last time I saw Elias was when he was four. He had the sweetest disposition even then. No parent should ever bury a child. My heart is broken for you. I hope and pray that you have the strength to make it through these tough times and be grateful that you got to have him for a son for 22 years. He will forever live in your hearts and he is always a whisper away. Fly high Elias, Fly free.
