To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.
