Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss of your beloved. May you draw comfort from our Heavenly Father, who comforts us during our trials and sorrows with the resurrection promised by Christ Jesus mentioned at John 5:28,29.

My deepest condolences to the family for your loss. Our Heavenly Father gives us a comforting thought when He tells us that soon death will be "swallowed up forever." (1 Cor. 15:54) Along with this, God also promises that ones who have died will be able to live again. (John 5:28,29) I hope these encouraging scriptures can bring you some comfort during this difficult time.
