    I’m sorry to hear about the passing of your love one Marian. Her passing is very unfortunate experience that sadden you deeply. It was not our Heavenly Father’s original purpose for us to die. That is why Jesus gave his life for all that we could have the hope in a resurrection. Acts 24:15 states “there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous” and at that time God will remember every detail about Marian and bring her back. Furthermore, the God of comfort, Jehovah, will soon eliminate death ( Rev 21:4). Therefore, during this time of sorrow draw close to Jehovah because he will stregthen and sustain your family.
