I am so very sorry for your loss. At such painful times, it is comforting to know that our Creator understands our grief. More than that, he longs to use his almighty power to restore life to the dead. Notice the hope conveyed in the words of Job, recorded at Job 14:15: "You will call, and I myself shall answer you. For the work of your hands you will have a yearning." We are the work of God's hands and the Creator who was responsible for our life can certainly restore us to life after death. Not only that but he has a yearning to reunite us with our dear loved ones. May these thoughts along with your warm memories give you comfort during this difficult time.
