I express my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your loved one Gerty I'm sure that she will be dearly missed by the many who loved her. Soon no one will suffer the loss of their loved ones anymore. Almighty God promises at Isaiah 25:8: "He will swallow up death forever." Also John 5:25 says: "Most truly I say to you, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live." Soon we will be reunited with our loved ones that have died, and live together forever in a peaceful new world without suffering, sickness, and death. May God's promises bring you comfort during your time of grief.
