Offering my deepest condolences at this time. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear loved one is resting now...merely sleeping and that soon Rev. 21:1-4 and Psalms 37:29 will be a reality....that soon we'll be able to see our loved ones again in a paradise no longer plagued with death, tears or pain. "The former things will have passed away."

I am so sorry for the family’s loss. Death is one of the hardest trials to cope with. May you find comfort from the future promise recorded in Revelation 21:4 which says “he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” We can be certain God will fulfill the words from his word the Bible.
