So very sorry for your loss. The God of all comfort promises to bring an end to pain, outcry, sorrow, tears and our enemy DEATH. He also promise to resurrect our dead loved ones. (2 Corinthians I:3,4, John 5:28,29, Revelation 21:4). These promises will be a reality because the true God cannot lie. (Titus 1:2). For additional comforting information please login to jw.org.
