    I would like to offer my condolences for your loss. I hope you will find comfort in knowing that Jehovah, the God of all comfort, will soon eliminate all grief and provide permanent consolation when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Christ’s] voice and come out”! (John 5:28, 29) God promises that “he will do away with death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isa. 25:8) Then, instead of having to “weep with those who weep,” all earth’s inhabitants will “rejoice with those who rejoice.”?—Rom. 12:15.

    In life we make so many good memories with our loved ones. Times that we truly cherish . But when we lose that loved ones it causes much pain. A pain that can seem to last forever. Death is an enemy that Jehovah God never meant for us to experience . But Jehovah God promises us that he will soon destroy this enemy of ours at Revelation 21:4. He tells us that soon we will not have to feel this great pain from death. I'm so sorry for your loss and hope that you find some comfort from Jehovah's word the bible.
