    I am so sorry to read of your loss. While there is nothing that can take the sting of death away, may you find some comfort in God’s promise to one day, “swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:8) and to “wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Revelation 21:4). Even more comforting is to know God will have “all those in the memorial tombs come out” free of sickness and pain.
