I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. May GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love. And when it happens, The thought of never again be able to talk to, laugh with, or hold your love one can be most difficult to bear. That pain is not necessarily erased by being told that your love one is up in heaven. The Bible, However, holds out a much different hope it states at Job 14:14,15 that the God of all comfort Jehovah yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth. I hope this thought brings you some comfort.
