I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the passing of your loved one. When the enemy death strikes(I Corinthian 15:26) the grief can be devastating to cope with even though you may believe in the resurrection hope, when Jesus promise to raise up those who have fallen asleep in death; restoring them back to life, on the renewed Paradise earth. -John 5:28,29; Luke 23:43. As you await the fulfillment of that hope Jehovah offers, you can be among those described in the Bible as “obtaining joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”-Isaiah 35:10. Until your pain and sorrow flees from you, and you are reunited with your loved one; I pray Jehovah God give you peace in your heart and comfort, during this time of sorrow.-Matthew 5:4.
