Sorry for the loss of your dear love one. May you find comfort in God’s promise to swallow up death forever and wipe the tears from all faces. Isaiah 25:8

I’m so sorry for the loss of your loved one.

God views death as an enemy. (1 Cor. 15:26)

And, God is eager to conquer this enemy death, and to resurrect our loved ones. (Job 14:14,15)

At that time, death will be no more. (Rev 21:4)

I hope this comforts you and your family.
