    Hello, I want to say I’m very sorry for the loss of your loved one. But I want to bring you hope and comfort by what the bible says will happen for everyone who passed away in death. Revelation 21:4 says how God “will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning or outcry or pain be anymore, the former things have passed away.” So one day, Jehovah God will do away with sickness, pain, old age, and death forever. Acts 24:15 also mentions that “there will be a resurrection of the righteous and unrighteous”. This means all who have died, like all my relatives and your relatives, will get a chance to live again, here on earth (Psalms 37:29). I do hope that I brought you some comfort. Jehovah’s witnesses in your local area can bring you more comfort from the bible, to help you cope with whatever tragedies you may be faced with. You can visit http://www.jw.org if you want more comfort, or have someone visit you as well.
