I am so sorry for your loss. Words cannot explain the pain a family goes through when a loved one dies and it is during these times when one seeks to their family and friends for comfort. Someone that extends their comfort to us during time like these is God. He asks us to throw our load on him so that we can endure through trying times. Not only that but God gives us a beautiful promise that He will soon fulfill. It is written in Johns 5:28,29 " Do not marvel at this for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life." I hope you can find comfort in this promise, once again I am so sorry for your loss.
