So sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that the bible likens death to a deep sleep (John 11:11) and promises that Jesus Christ will awaken all those in Gods memory that have fallen asleep in death (John 5:28, 29). Yes, we have the wonderful hope of seeing our loved ones again. At that time Revelation 21:3, 4 says "death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." Until then, continue to look to Jehovah God and his word the Bible for comfort in your times of grief and sorrow (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4).
