Please accept my sincere condolences. God knows the pain that comes with losing a loved one, that is why he has promised to do away with his enemy, death (1 Corinthians 15:26). Our dear loved ones who are sleeping in death will soon wake up from their temporary sleep and return to us (Isaiah 26:19). Hold on firmly to this hope, and may the wonderful memories fill your heart and mind.
