So sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. Losing someone you love may seem unfair and I hope that you can find comfort in the words found in God’s word at John 5: 28-29 “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.” Soon enough you will see the ones you love again and be filled with joy.
