Dear family, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I know you will miss your loved one very much. I have found much comfort from scriptures like the one in Revelation 21:3,4 which speaks of a time when death will be no more. I always wondered why god allows suffering and death. I found the answer in the bible and would love to share it with you when you are feeling up to it! It promises a time when we will see our loved ones again and be reunited with them in good health and peaceful conditions..... The way God originally wanted this earth to be in the beginning..... I keep you in my prayers......Much love...... Shellye
