I would like to express my sincere condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. Death is a hurtful thing ,but the bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection to come according to scriptures such as [Acts chapter 24: 15] and [John 5:28-29]. We find further hope in scriptures like [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations 21:3-5] which says in part that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, because God will swallow up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.
With Deep Sympathy.
