    Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your dear, loved one. Death is hard to deal with. Even Jesus gave way to tears when Lazarus died. (John 11:35) But our Heavenly Father views death as an enemy and promises to put an end to it. (1 Cor 15:26)

    I am sorry to read about the death of your dear loved one. We all were created with eternity in our hearts, the desire to live . (Ecclesiastes 3:11) In the near future that will be a reality, life without the illnesses and death to overtake it. The promises that Almighty God Jehovah has spoken in his written word the Bible is based upon truth. Titus 1:2 says; "God cannot lie."
