I offer my deepest sympathy to the family, may the fond memories that you shared bring you comfort. It is heartbreaking to lose a loved one in death. Soon God perfect goverment will rule over mankind (Matthew 6:10) Those in the memorial tombs will be resurrected (John 5:28,29) and death will be no more (Revelation 21:4) We will live forever here on earth in abundance of peace (Psalm 37:11, 29)

I am so sorry for your loss. Isaiah 33:24 says: No resident will say "I am sick". So soon we won't worry about losing our loved ones to death, because of sickness, for it will be gone, never to return, because he know the pain that sickness and death, brings to famiies and he love and care for you. I hope these facts bring you and your family comfort during the difficult days ahead and in your time of need.
