Please accept my deepest condolences. It's always a painful tragedy to lose a loved one in death. It saddens us to think that we may never see our loved one's smile again or hear their laughter again. But God has promised all of us that one day death will not exist and that we will see our dead loved ones again. Revelation 21:4 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." I hope that this brings your family a measure of solace during this difficult time. If you have more questions about the Bible and its promises, please feel free to contact me or visit JW.org
