I am very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is such a difficult thing to experience. Please be comforted by the promises in the Bible. Jesus tells us at John 5:28,29 that all those in the memorial tombs will hear His voice and come out. What a loving provision put in place by the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) so that we can have the assured hope of seeing our dead loved ones live again one day soon. In the meantime as I pray for that day to come, I ask our Heavenly Father to bless your family and give each of you the needed strength to endure this most trying time. Once again, I am so sorry for your loss.
