John 6:40-"For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day." The bible promises that soon you will have the joy of seeing your loved one resurrected to live forever on a paradise earth where death will be no more, neither will pain and suffering.(Revelation 21:1-4) What a wonderful day that will be! May this beautiful promise and many more, found in your family bible, bring you comfort and give you the strength to endure until our heavenly Father fulfills his word.
