We are so very sorry for your loss! Feelings of despair can be overwhelming at this time. We pray that “the Father of tender mercies, and the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4) will give you peace of mind and comfort in your hearts. Acts 24:15 says that “there is going to be a resurrection” and Job 14:14, 15 shows that God has a longing to resurrect his friends! We are so grateful that our loving God looks forward, as much as we do, to reuniting us with our loved ones.
