    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. May you find peace and comfort in the promises of our Heavenly Father Jehovah, as found in His Word the Bible, at Acts 24:15: “… there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”, and Psalm 37:29: “The righteous will possess the earth and they will live forever on it.”
