I'm sorry to hear your lost and God hates death; he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection (John 5:28,29). He yearns to bring back your love one who is in his memory and to see them live on earth again. (Revelations 21:4)
