    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My prayers are with your family during this sad time. Thankfully, within his Holy Word the Bible, God promises us that soon “death will be no more”. He also gives us the hope of seeing our loved ones again who have fallen asleep in death (Revelation 21:3-4, John 5:28,29). May this hope comfort you.
