My family and I are deeply sorry for your loss. The pain of losing a love one can be unbearable. May God give peace and comfort to your family at this most difficult time. God is near all those brokenhearted and he saves those crush in spirit. Psalm 34:18. Very soon God will remove death forever and bring back our love ones who have died by means of a resurrection. Revelation 21:3,4 and Acts 24:15.
