    Please accept my sincere regrets for your loss. I know how difficult death can be to have to deal with. God through His written word the bible provides us with comfort and hope in times such as these. It helps us to see that there will be a resurrection of our dead love ones, also that God will wipe every tear from our eyes and death and pain will be no more, this is especially comforting since we know this scripture has to be referring to the earth because these things don't exist in heaven. ( John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:4) Please take a moment and go to for answers to any questions you may have.
