Words cannot even begin to express our sorrow. The passing of someone you love can be a very hard thing to cope with. Perhaps you can find some solace in the resurrection hope mentioned in the Bible at Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. He wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4 My deepest sympathy to you all.
