I am sorry for your loss. May our Father in heaven give the family strength during this trying time. May you also find comfort and hope in God’s word found at John 5:28, 29 and Acts 24:15 where we are assured that those sleeping in death have the wonderful prospect of a resurrection in a righteous new world. (Psalm 37:29) May these scriptures give you peace.
