I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I know this is a very difficult time for the family. Remembering the good times spent with your loved one can bring comfort on those hard days. It's comforting also to know that God will not forget our loved ones that have passed away. John 5:28,29 saysDo not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment". Thanks to the ransom sacrifice of Jesus we have the hope of welcoming back to life our dear ones asleep in death.
