    Please allow me to offer my condolences for your loss. The bible assures us that you will see "Willie" again. This is promised at John 5: 28,29. We also look forward to a time when death will be no more. Rev. 21: 3,4. When I need comfort I visit and search the word comfort and there you will be directed to several scriptures to help you during this time of grief.
