Losing a loved one ib death is one of the hardest burdens to bear. But there is hope from God's word the Bible that can sustain us as we grieve. The Bible promises there will be a time when a grand resurrection will take place and bring our loved ones back to us. May you find comfort in this hope. (John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15)
