My heart aches from the grief that you are feeling.
Knowing of God’s embracing love for you, continue looking to him when ” He will wipe all tears from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. ” – Revelation 21:3,4
He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. ” – 1 Corinthians 15:26
It comforts our hearts to know this pain will be a thing of the past and through Christ a resurrection for our loved ones.
We ” do not sorrow just as those who have no hope! ” – 1 Thessalonians 4:13
