I am sorry to learn there was a death in your family. The loss of a loved one is very painful. I'd like to share scripture that may bring comfort to your family. Mark 5:35-43 reads in part...While Jesus was speaking, he overheard men telling an officer of the synagogue that his daughter died. Upon hearing this, Jesus, Peter, James and John, the brother of James, went to the officer's home. When they arrived, Jesus went to the child and told her to get up. Immediately, she got up. You see, Jehovah promises a resurrection of our loved ones. (Acts 24:15) We must have faith in this promise. We can also strengthen our faith by reading Isaiah 55:11 and Isaiah 25:8.
