  1. I want to give my deepest condolences for your loss. Losing a loved one is the hardest situation anyone can face, but the bible gives us hope for those we lose in death. Acts 24:15, those who have died can be resurrected to live again. My favorite scripture is Revelation 21:4, mentions that soon God will do away with death, and it will be no more. I hope that you take comfort in these scriptures, and turn to Jehovah God for comfort during this difficult time.
