My sincere condolences to the family and friends, so sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God will soon resurrect our dear loved ones (John 5:28-29). Oh how we long for that time when pain, suffering and death will be no more, these former things will have passed away (Revelation 21:3-5).
