Im so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. During difficult times like this I find it comforting to reflect on the good times you had with your loved one and on the hope of seeing them again. The last book of the Bible (Revelation 21:1-4) speaks of a restored paradise where the human family will have the prospect of enjoying life without end, free from all sickness, disease and death. May the above scripture bring comfort to all in your family as you continue to strengthen and encourage one another.
