My sincere condolences for your family and friends. May God provide you with the strength you need to cope during this difficult time. The bible promises a future hope of seeing our dead loved ones again. John 5:28 says "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".
