I wanted to express my sincerest condolences to you and your family during this difficult time. During times of loss in my own life, I have found great comfort in the promises found in the scriptures, which assure us we will be reunited with our loved ones here on earth (Acts 24:15, John 5:28, 29). We have assurance from the Creator that he did not intend for us to suffer, and will do away with sadness and death in the future (Revelation 21:3-4, 1 Corinthians 15:26). I hope these promises will help you now and in the days ahead.
