I am so sorry for your loss. God knows the pain that comes with losing a loved one, that is why he promises that he will do away with his enemy, death (1 Corinthians 15:26). We will soon be reunited with our dear, loved ones. Hold on firmly to that wonderful hope during this difficult time.

Thinking of you during this time of reflection and sorrow.
May you find comfort from the God of all comfort and His word (Romans 5:15; 15:4)
We long for the time of the fulfillment of promises when death will be no more.
Warm regards,
