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 assurance that death will be swallowed up forever. What wonderful blessings to look forward to knowing that your loved one is in God's memory. Hope this thought brings comfort.
