So very sorry to hear about your loss. My condolence to you and your family. It will be so wonderful when death is no more. Rev.21:3,4. And see our loved ones again on Earth in the future . Acts 24:15 Psalms 37: 11, 29 What a comfort to know that God does not cause death at this time. Ecclesiastes 9:11. "Thy kingdom come thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven ." This is a government. Soon, it will solve all mankind's problems. No more sickness, pain, death, mourning, there will be no more food shortages. Mathew 6:10; Daniel 2:24; Revelation 21:3,4 Isaiah 26:19. Psalms 37:11,29. Look up all the scriptures, you will see that this is true. I am praying for strength beyond normal for you, and comfort for you and your family. For more comfort from the Bible for free , please. Email me at:. All is free.
