I know how difficult this time must be for you. May the light from God’s word the Bible be a guide and comfort through the darkness of your loss. John 5:28,29 gives hope of a future resurrection and Rev 21:3,4 of a day when there will be no more death, mourning or pain. We can have faith in these promises because our God Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) who promised these things cannot lie.
