Sorry for the loss of your love one. John 5:28, 29 assures us that Jesus will restore life to those who has died. Revelation 21:3, 4 gives further assurances that death will be swallowed up forever. This is a comforting thought knowing that your loved one is in God's memory. Hope this brings comfort.
