I am sorry for your loss. May looking forward to the fulfillment of these scriptures be of encouragement to you. Isaiah 33:24, and 25:8, tell us that The God of love will bring an end to sickness and death. Gods son, Jesus Chist, while here on earth spoke about the resurrection hope in John 5:28,29 That means that we will have the opportunity to see our loved ones again. Sounds to good to be true? Just think if Adam and Eve would have followed the directions at Genesis 2:17, mankind would not be suffering sickness and death. That leads to this question, Will The God of Love ever fulfill his original purpose? Please read Psalms 37:10,11,29, and 72:7,8. There you will find the Answer. I hope that this letter and the scriptures within give you and your family some comfort and assured hope.
