I am sorry to read about the passing of your love one. I send my sincere condolences to the family and friends. When unforeseen occurrences befall us and the enemy death strikes, our grief can be great. It is at times like this that we need comfort and support whether we are acquainted or not. May you find comfort in Almighty God's promise of the "resurrection" found in His Word the Bible at Acts 24th Chapter and 15th verse. All of His promises will come true, for it is impossible for God to lie.-Hebrews 6:18.
