To family and friends my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. May the God of comfort and tender mercies sustain you during this most difficult time.
(2 Corinthians 1:3,4) May you find comfort in the hope of the resurrection found in the Scriptures at John 5:28,29 where Jesus promised that there's going to be a resurrection of all those in the grave and they will hear his voice and come out.
