    The Creator of the heavens and the earth has promised death will be no more. (Rev 21:4) Sorry for the loss of your loved one. My condolences are with you and family as you grieve. May the God of all comfort brings you comfort and strengthens you from the scriptures as you endure the loss of your loved one. God promises that he will resurrect millions of people who have died. "There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous." (2 Cor 1:3-4; Heb 2:15; John 5:28-29) For additional information please visit I can also be reached at
