  1. So sorry to hear of your loss.🙏

  2. My thoughts are with the family . I hope the promise at Revelation 21:3,4 brings you comfort knowing that God will end death and we will see our loved ones in the future. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
