    I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. Hope these words give you a new hope.

    My deepest sympathy during this time of your loss. In the times we are living it appears that we are loosing many of our love one in death due to sickness. We feel helpless because we can only sit and watch our love ones suffer. Almighty God has a solution for both sickness and death. He said that there will come a time when both death and sickness will be done away with forever, never to plague mankind again (1Corinthians15:26 & Isaiah 33:24). This is a wonderful thing that God had held out to all humankind. He also promise to bring many who have fallen asleep in death back to life(John5:28,29). We know these things will come to pass, because Almighty God promises that it will, and his promises always comes true. He doesn't lie. I hope that just knowing that there is a hope for your loved one future gives you the strength to carry on(Isaiah 41:10). My thoughts and sympathy are with you and your family.
