I'd like to express my heartfelt condolences to you and your family on the loss of your father, grandfather and brother. When you happen to find an individual who has achieved such a long and full life as John has, that may make one wonder why did my family member have to die at all. But God gives us his personal promise found in the Bible at Revelation 21:4, where he tells us that very soon he will do away with death and sickness from the Earth forever, and then he will resurrect John to perfect life here on a fully cleansed Earth, being reunited with family and friends and being able to experience life as God meant it to be, which has always been God's purpose for mankind and for his Earth.
