My sincere condolences to you and your loved ones during this difficult time. Unfortunately, nothing can fully prepare us for the loss of a parent, a spouse, or a child. A tragedy may strike unexpectedly or unfold relentlessly. Whatever the case, the pain of death cannot be eluded, and its finality can be devastating. The Bible shares a wonderful resurrection hope for future. I pray that you find comfort in the wonderful hope of John 5:28, 29.
