    I would like to express my condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to such scriptures as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Revelations 21:3-5] which says that Jehovah God will wipe away every tear from own eyes, and [Isaiah 25:8] says that God will swallow up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort. With Deep Sympathy.
