“Death is a solemn event for everyone. It is the winding up of all earthly plans and expectations. It is a separation from all we have loved and lived with. It is often accompanied by much bodily pain and distress. It opens the door to judgement and eternity – to heaven or to hell. It is an event after which there is no change, or space for repentance.”

J. C. Ryle
