Our condolences to the family. The death of a love one can be extremely difficult to cope with. Many have found comfort in the many promises found in Gods word the bible, especially in the promise found there at Acts 24:15. There we read about the Resurrection. By means of the Resurrection our loving creator (Psalms 83:18) will by means of his only begotten son Jesus Christ ( John 3:16) restore life to those sleeping in death as promised. Please reflect on this along with Titus 1:2. There it reminds mankind "God cannot lie". I pray this bring comfort to you during this difficult time...MaryAnn
