My sincere condolences during this most difficult time. May you take some comfort in the words of our lord Jesus Christ recorded at John 5:28, 29, where he promises that under the rule of his Kingdom the grave will be emptied as those now asleep in death will be brought back to life. His God and Father, Jehovah, has given him all authority in heaven and on earth and with this he will do away with death forever - 1 Corinthians 15:20-28. I am truly sorry for your loss, and I eagerly look forward to the time when we will cry out joyfully as we welcome back our loved ones to life on a paradise earth.
