My sincere condolences to your family during this time of sorrow, may your loving memoeries help you in the days ahead to cope and may you find comfort from God's promise at Isaiah 26:19: "Your dead ones will live.....they will rise up. Awake and cry out joyfully." Until this promise is fulfilled in the near future may you draw close to God because he cares for you.
