I am sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in the promises at Revelation 21:4 that reads: "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 has passed away." The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life.
