Sending sincere condolences to your family for the loss of your loved one this past January. Death bring deep sorrow and I want to share a scripture of hope with you. It is found at Revelation 21:4 where it says, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” The enemy we face today will be gone forever and those we have lost in death are promised a resurrection hope at Acts 24:15. It will be a wonderful time when we are reunited with our loved ones again.
