My deepest sympathy to your family for the loss of your dear loved one. May Jehovah God comfort all of you in your time of grief. The Bible promises that there will be a time when we won’t have to worry about death anymore. For Isaiah 25:8 brings out that God “will swallow up death forever, and he will wipe away the tears from all faces.”
