I am truly sorry for your loss, so I share with you bible comfort and hope that has helped me through the pain of losing loved ones. The Bible assures us that Almighty God is able and promises to resurrect our loved ones who die (1 Cor 15:20-22, Acts 24:15, Job 14:14-15) to live forever in perfect health (Isaiah 33:24), with no more tears, pain, nor death (Revelation 21:3-5). May this future hope (Romans 15:4) bring you comfort, as you examine more of life's manual, the Bible.
