My sincere condolences goes to the family & friends. Death is never easy to go thru; although, we can find great comfort from the bible, God's word. (2 Corinthians 1:2-4) May you allow it to provide you with a measure of peace and strengthen you doing this difficult  time.  The scriptures that follow will give you hope and consolation; Revelation 21:3, 4 and John 5:28, 29.

Grief can be so hard and painful, but our special memories  can help us to cope. I'm sorry to hear about your loss and wanted to share the Bible's hope of a resurrection at a time when there is no more sickness, pain or death right here on earth. This is the promise from our father according to Revelation 21:3,4. Sincerely Rebecca
