    I am sorry for your lost. May you find comfort in God’s word the Bible. At Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever.” It was not our God’s purpose for us to get sick or die. He has made loving provisions to remove suffering and death from us forever. Our love ones will live again. Read John 6:40;2 Peter 3:13.
