Dear family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one and send you my sincere condolences. May you find comfort from the promises in God's word at Revelation 21:3,4 about no more sickness or death and at Acts 24:15 where his Son says "there is going to be a resurrection...". Heartfelt prayers are with you and your family.
