My deepest sympathy to the family on the passing of your loved one. May God Almighty(Psalms 83:18), the father of tender mercies, comfort all of you. His word at John 5:28,29 tells us that there is hope of a resurrection for our loved ones; meaning that the dead will come back to life in the near future. May God (Psalms 83:18) whose promises never fail (Joshua 23:14) continue to strengthen you through the pages of His word the Bible, and keep the family together.
