I'm so sorry for your loss. Death is truly a tragic thing to deal with. However the bible say that there is going to be a resurrection at Acts 24:15. So we all do have a hope of being reunited with our dead loved ones. (John 5:28, 29) We can believe this because God is the creator of life and the one who gave life to all living creatures is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died onto a paradise earth. (Psalm 36:9: Acts 17:24, 25)

My sincere condolences to the Family. I too have lost several loved ones in death, and the pain is tremendous, even with the passage of time. I found words of encouragement from God's word the Bible. The Bible speaks of death being an enemy that God never intended mankind to experience. In Isaiah 25:8, God promises that in the future he will actually swallow up death forever. You can put all your trust in God's promises. Titus 1:2
