I am very sorry for your loss. Please know that your friends and loved ones are here for you during this difficult time. (Proverbs 17:17). For additional comfort please throw you anxieties on God because he care for you. (1 Peter 5:7) May your memories bring you a smile in the days ahead.

And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.

You will get to see her smile again hear her laugh taste her food and do everything you use to do .All of this will be able to happen by means of God’s kingdom (Matthew 6:10 let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth.)
