When you truly love someone, the fact that they are no longer alive, does not matter. True love crosses all boundaries. "The green grass drys up, the blossom withers, but the (promise) of our God endures forever." (Isaiah 40:8) And our God promises comfort. Isaiah 40:1 says: "Comfort, comfort my people, says your God."
