I'm so sorry for your family's loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I personally know the loss of a loved one, and the pain can seem overwhelming. However, I found comfort in the Bible's promise for the future. Acts 24:15 speaks of a resurrection, a time when God will reunite us with our lost loved ones. I hope this helps bring some comfort in this time of sorrow.

I am sorry for your loss. I hope that the promise in John 6:40 can bring comfort and hope to the Family in these distressing times as well.
