“I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is never easy. I would like to share something with you. That I believe will give you comfort. It is found in the Bible at Acts 24:15 it reads " And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous."This can really comfort you to know that your loved one will return to life and do good things and will be able to enjoy life forever on earth. My condolences to you and your family.
