I offer my condolences to the family for your loss. Please take comfort in the promise found at John 5:28,29 of the time when we can be reunited with our dear loved ones again. May your reflection on this hope and the fond memories you have bring you comfort and strength to endure this difficult time.

Sorry for your loss. Many wonder why good people die. Romans 5:12 tells us we all are effected by sin. But, Revelation 21:3,4 says it will soon end! Why? Because God loved the world so much he gave his only begotten son, Jesus Christ. ( John 3:16) We pray for comfort for your family.
