So sorry for your loss... We never know when the time will come that our loved ones will leave us. It is something that you really cannot prepare for. It saddens us to see them go... .But the bible hold out promises that we can count on. Jesus said that the hour will come when all will hear his voice and stand once again.(John 5:28, 29). So please continue to look to the Lord and his words for lasting comfort.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Death is the enemy of all mankind, yet when it touches us personally, it is at times difficult to receive the comfort we search for. In times like these I know I can find comfort in God's word. In John 5:28,29 He tells us " Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." As the God and Father of tender mercies, He wants you to find comfort in Him through prayer ( 2 Cor 1:3 ).

I would like to express my condolences for your loss. The world is filled with losses that cause much grief today. The Bible contains scriptures that can give us comfort. For example Revelations 21:4 tells us that God will wipe out every tear. This includes tears caused by death of loved ones. John 5:28,29 also states that there will be a resurrection to life. These are just a couple of the comforting thoughts found in the scriptures and I hope that they provide comfort.
