I'm truly sorry to read about the loss of your loved one. God is a God of comfort and I pray that he will comfort your Family at this difficult time (2Corinthians 1:3,4). In due time God will swallow up death forever (Isaiah 25:8 , 1 Corinthians 15:26). Imagine the time when there's no more sick,pain or death and the earth being restore to a Paradise (Revelation 21:4). May you find comfort in the promises that God has made. Please accept my condolences.
