My deepest sympathies to the family! May you find comfort in the Bible promises of a resurrection. Isaiah 25:8 tells us: He will swallow up death forever, and the sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. Isaiah 26:19 Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, you residents in the dust! For you dew is as the dew of the morning and the earth will let those powerless in death come to life. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
