Even though I did not know Kay, I wanted to give my most heartfelt sympathy to all of her family. May you find comfort in your special memories. True, remembering those times may be painful at first, but in time, those memories will help you to heal. So, while grief at the loss of your dear Kay is certainly great, the joy you will have at welcoming her back in the resurrection will be so much greater! Yes, there will be a time when you can see your loved ones who have died again. In the Bible, John 5:28 says “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” Also, Psalms 37:29 says “The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.” How comforting to know that Kay is only resting, just sleeping in death, waiting to be resurrected on earth, by God and finally see all those that she loved, again. May you also find comfort in this scripture, God “will swallow up death forever, [He] will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) Can you see with your mind’s eye: death will be completely gone, living forever on a paradise earth and never having to live without our loved ones ever again.
With Deepest Sympathy,
The Ward Family
