I was sorry to read about the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to these scriptures [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in scriptures such as [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations 21:3-5] which says in part that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, because God will swallow up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.
Sincere Condolences.

I will never forget all of us chasing after firetrucks, Gloria, Joyce, my mom, my sister and I, when we lived down on 29th St. so we could see where they were going. RIP Gloria with the Lord.
