ìHe [God] heals the brokenhearted; He [God] binds up their wounds.î (Psalm 147:3) Iím sorry for your loss; may God provide you and your family with peace and comfort during this difficult time. The Bible shares a wonderful resurrection hope for future. I pray that you find comfort in the wonderful promises of John 5:28, 29 and Acts 24:15.
