I am so sorry for your loss. Loosing a loved one is one of the hardest things we have to bear. We really miss them and at times we may feel helpless. A scripture that has helped me cope with loss is John 5:28,29. Here Jesus says "the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear voice and come out ". This promise of a resurrection assures us that he wants to reunite us with our loved ones again. I hope this brings your family some comfort during this difficult time.
