I’m very sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. Grief can be so hard especially the first year and though it may seem like death is the final state of things God’s word offers the hope of seeing those lost in death again during the promised resurrection. Christ spoke of this resurrection which means a standing back up, a restoration to life. At John 5:28,29 and John 6:40 he says in part “do not marvel at this there is going to be a resurrection...I will resurrect him on the last day”. So be assured you can be reunited with your loved one at a time when all things are made new. A time of true peace and security! You can read this at Psalms 37:10,11,29 and Revelation 21:4,5. There are many more heartwarming scriptures that give comfort and hope. For more please visit

And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4
