I want to send to you my deepest sympathy for your great loss. There are few experiences more difficult than the loss of a loved one. We can find comfort in knowing death was not God’s prupose for mankind and his purpose has not changed. God’s word says ‘death is an enemy’ and promises it will be ‘brought to nothing’. (1Corinthians 15:26) Further “He will swallow up death forever, and the Soveriegn Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” So we have the guarantee that that the pain and suffering we experience today is only temporary. (Revelation 21:4) Jesus spoke of the coming resurrection of those we have lost to the enemy death at John 5:28, 29. Imagine being able to see those we have lost in death, once again, here on earth. I so do hope this brings you some sort of comfort in these days and weeks to come.
