I am sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in the resurrection promise at John 5:28,29 that reads: "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all that are in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life.
