Gary & Arlene, may your family find comfort from Psalms 147:3; "He (God) heals the brokenhearted, He binds up their wounds." Through your sadness and hurt, try to imagine living without fear of sickness, pain or death in perfect conditions on earth forever! God, never intended mankind to get sick, grow old or die; Rev 21:4 promises conditions as originally purposed; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Today, you grieve with sad tears for your loved one, in the very near future your tears will be of overwhelming joy as one of the greatest earthly demonstations of Jehovah’s marvelous kindnesses when he resurrect's those lost in death. (John 5:8,29) Doesn’t this fill your heart with hope? Warmest regards.
My sincere condolences to the family and friends. May the God who binds up the broken-hearted and comforts all who mourn sustain your family during this difficult time. Isaiah 61:1,2
