Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things we have to deal with in life. Something that has brought myself some help and comfort are some wonderful promises we have from our loving Creator. You can find these promises at John 5:28,29 and Isaiah 25:8. These verses are promises from God that we will see our dead loved ones again and also a time that God says he will do away with death forever. I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. I hope this brings you all some comfort.
