“Our condolences, We are so sorry for your loss, pain, and mourning. Almighty God personally promises at Revelation 21:3, 4, to those of us, in pain and mourning that "God will himself be with them. God will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." The person who dies is remembered by God, shown at John 5:25-29, and he remembers those who mourn too. May you gain truth and comfort from the Promises at Isaiah 65:17, 20-25, and 2Peter 3:13. The Bible shows at Hebrews 6:18, Numbers 23:19, and Titus 1:2, God cannot lie, as we humans can and do, it is impossible for Him to lie, so take solace in the promises at Isaiah and John, for you and for your missed loved one. Psalm 83:18, & Isaiah 55:8-11 gives comfort also. Agape’ Woo”
