    Please accept my sincere regrets for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Death is never an easy thing to have to deal with, even Jesus himself wept when his friend Lazarus feel asleep in death. Revelation 21:4 says that God will wipe every tear from our eyes and death and pain will be no more. This is especially comforting since we know this scripture has to be referring to the earth because these things don't exist in heaven.

    I'm so sorry to hear you are grieving the loss of your dear loved one. May you find strength and some comfort in the words found in Nahum 1:7 which reads: ”Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the provision of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise. Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one?

    I am so sorry for your lost. I hope you find comfort in the scripture at Acts 24:15. This is what our God Jehovah promises for all. And we can look forward to what is written in Psalm 37: 9-11 and 29.
